1st Annual Tirhandil Cup 2016 – Bodrum Turkey
There is nothing more unique during October in the Aegean Sea than to see a real live gulet Regatta. A fleet of hand built, stunning Turkish yachts all under sail at the same time. This is an event the Turkish are rightfully very proud of. It is held annually from the exciting port of Bodrum, Turkey (17 – 22 October 2016). However, what is even more rare is a Tirhandil regatta.
For the first time ever, organized by the Era Bodrum Sailing Club, the 1st Annual Tirhandil Cup 2016 will be held from October 8 to 9. Just the thought of these rare wooden double enders’ sailing is pure excitement in watching them compete in a 2 leg race from Bodrum.
Stunning all around, first the Tirhandil Cup followed by the Bodrum Cup in it’s 28th year; are events that should not be missed.
Mirya Yachting would like to wish all contenders in both races the very best of luck!
