Here in lies the story of the intrepid adventures of Oxted Offshore in Turkey September 2017.
Arrived in Gocek, Thursday 14th September 2017 to be informed that our Yacht will not be delivered to Gocek due to some problem, however the charter company has offered to send a minibus to pick us up on Saturday and take us to Bodrum, a trip that takes 3 hours. This upsets our plans somewhat as we were due to meet up with two other OXO yachts; on the upside our new passage plan sailing from Bodrum back to Gocek will be very interesting.
Following on from last years successful trip to Skiathos Nicky and Howard from Nautilus Yachting have kindly organised for another event this year in Greece’s beautiful North Ionian including Paxos and Anti-Paxos. Three boats are already confirmed for the flotilla departing on Sunday September 29th for Preveza airport and arriving back in the UK on Sunday 6th of August.
The Oxted Offshore party of 14 arrived in Skiathos this morning and were able to sign off the 3 yachts and head for the supermarket before setting sail for Skopolos where we arrived around 19:00 in Loutraki.
Many thanks to OO Member John Rutherford for last weekend for letting myself and a number of other members come racing with him in the June Summer Series Royal Southern 175 Regatta. We experienced testing conditions and the 2nd race on Saturday was called off due to reports of 30 knot winds, the wind abated long enough on Sunday however for full days of racing; click here to read the full report of the racing on the Royal Southern website.
