With my skipper Dan I work on our little ship ORKUN - SWELL I You can get an impression of the tendency of our ship here: Moments on the ORKUN - SWELL I
On a Gulet can stay overnight up to 12 persons. In roomy 6 double cabs with own bath & toilet you can recover yourself from the stress. If you are ever at the Cote d'Azur and want to join us, send us a message.
A Gulet is a sailsboat usually made from wood. Gulets were built since the Antique in Karien (particularly in Bodrum and Marmaris) and were over thousands of years the type of ships for the trader from the Amphora, who carried olives, wine and many other precious goods along the Turkish coasts. The wooden building ships are admired for the warmth and great atmosphere compared with the common plastic boats.
As I also do a videoblog about good food and wine, you are welcome to join my group Charlottenburg Cuisine at GREAT COOKS.
We made a episode on our ship. As we think good food and wine is part of great sailing expiriences:
The appetizer is tagliatelle putanesca. As a main course we serve cod filets provencale style and for dessert we serve baked pears in a rosé-honey sauce. Enjoy!

"Yep my boat is 8 years old, fresh water use only until last Aug, decommissioned for three years and the grease inside was more like a sticky paraffin wax if there is such a thing. Totally unacceptable. "
"That's it Sam! I recall the main luff a tad loose while sailing, threw maybe three wraps on the drum and pulled it tight. Afterwards, it was jammed.
On a side I remember saying to myself "I shouldn't have done that while under…"
"Wayne, thanks for the update. You must have really put some pressure on that arm for it to flex that much. Glad to hear you got it apart and serviced. As an FYI next time use an appropriately sized piece of hardwood as the drift. Or lay the wood…"
