Bodrum Cup, one of the biggest naval organizations of Turkey, is one of the few races of the Mediterranean, where yachts sail with passengers on board.

23rd INTERNATIONAL WOODEN SAILING YACHT REGATTA BODRUM CUP ITINERARY:

Anyone, not just sailors, can participate in the regatta on our yachts. Individuals who participate can just take it easy and enjoy the cruise or, if they wish, they can assist in sail handling and other crew activities becoming fully involved in the excitement of the regatta.

These participants, in addition to accommodation aboard, will be provided with meals (full-board) at the following rate for the whole duration of the regatta.

The Bodrum Cup Wooden Sailing Yacht Regatta is an international event which has become a tradition, held every year since 1989.

It is an unusual race in that charter yachts participate complete with passengers. The Bodrum Cup is not only a race, but also a marine festival with guests from all over the world. It is also an exhibition, an opportunity to show off the beautiful, locally-built yachts to prospective buyers.

It is an event where captains and crews can further develop their skills, a school where people can learn to use the wind to the best advantage, and a chance for the yacht builders to test their boats in all kinds of weather.

People in Bodrum and the surrounding area have always built boats, adapting the designs according to the needs of the period.

Wooden boats were used in ancient times to carry wine and other cargoes, and more recently were produced for sponge diving and fishing purposes.

In the 1970s when the beauty of the Gokova Gulf became more widely known through books and articles in the press, fishing boats were one by one transformed into charter yachts.

New yachts were constructed with the requirements of the passengers on these blue cruises in mind, so that sailing took a back seat to comfort.

Towards the 1990s, the production of wooden boats in Turkey rose rapidly to the ten thousand mark.

After being neglected for a period, the capacity of the yachts as sailing vessels once more came to the fore with the Bodrum Cup.

The competition between craftsmen who participate in the boats they have built, and the competition between their newest boats and those of previous years, spurs the production of ever better yachts certified to high standards, both luxurious and fine performers under sail.

For five days, one and a half thousand people, including five hundred from other countries, rise at dawn to prepare for the days exciting race which ends at sunset, giving way to an evening of pleasurable socializing.

The concerts performed aboard at night while the boats are in the circle of love formation are especially enjoyable.

The course changes each year and the yachts compete to win the Bodrum Cup awarded at the end of the five days.

You may also participate exclusively with your group of friend in the regatta by hiring one of our Competitor or Spectator yachts.
