Super Saturday! Excellent feed back from one of our guests last week: 'Dear Loes, Excellent holiday. I made new friends who I hope to meet again, either visiting me in the UK or on another gulet. Robert' Robert, a single traveler, sailed with us on our 14 person yacht Notus, start and finish Gocek, a 10 day cruise, sailing along the Turkish coast. Image by Samuela Goodall  :-)

It's good to be flexible! We all live on such a tight schedule, don’t we? Appointments, meetings, timetables and clocks to watch. And most cruises operate that way. But here at ScicSailing we let nature and the elements dictate our days at sea. If the weather changes, our itinerary may change. Our passengers understand this need to be flexible. So switch off your phone, leave your watch in your cabin and join us on deck to see where the wind carries us! Image @BrigitteVincken

Great feedback from 4 friends who sailed with us for the second time on our 16-person yacht Nemesis along the Greek Islands, Kos, Patmos, Lipsi, Arki, Kalymnos: "Dear Loes, Our Quartet has again enjoyed the sailing cruise as much as 3 years ago. We laughed a lot, the mix of guests was great. We had 4 ladies aboard who were all around 20 younger than us, but they also had a good week. We were well taken care of by the captain & crew, good food and plenty of drinks and the weather was super…

Perfect start of the week! Fortunately this season departure from Rhodes is possible again. Just have booked a group of friends who met each other on board years ago. Some have been sailing with us since the 90's and this year for the 21st time! Now for the 1st time departure and arrival Rhodes, super!

There's no time to be bored in Bodrum! I just got back last week and it's been a good time with all the sailors involved in the last leg of the Winter Cup and Dragon races. I enjoyed dinner in Bodrum's Dayim Kofte. It is a typical restaurant especially renowned for its meat. I had time to party and enjoy the latest music at the Marina Yacht Club. Last week the British ambassador had lunch there. And went for a bit of relaxation to a Spa and wellness centre, an hour and half of bliss, Turkish…

ScicSailing culinary workshops: for our chefs! Being a chef is a very creative process. Every spring we organize a workshop for our own chefs hosted by a fellow professional. Last week chef Ahmet Çetin has honoured us again with a fascinating workshop. Ahmet is owner of restaurant Bodrum Tadinda, a member of a gastronomy federation and involved in many culinary competitions all over the world presenting Turkish cuisine. With a lot of input from our own chefs and special requests of our guest…

Dotting the I’s Last year 99% of our passengers confirmed how much they had enjoyed their holiday. This high satisfaction score does not mean we can rest on our laurels. In the winter months, not to mention during the season, we continue to make improvements, large and small that make the difference, although sometimes not obviously noticed. If we say so ourselves, we are detail freaks. We therefore think it’s important that everything is prepared in detail so our guests can completely relax…
