Don't call it a dream. Call it a plan and sail with us.

Ventus Sailing Cruises welcomes you on board! Ventus is a Dutch tour operator (with an office in the UK) that organizes all-inclusive sailing cruises along the Turkish Aegean coast, with a few cruises also including visits to some Greek islands. This area enjoys a blend that is wholly unique: spectacular landscapes, a fascinating history and all this combined with superb sailing opportunities. Besides enjoying the natural and cultural beauty of the area, a Ventus sailing cruise is all about offering you the ultimate leisure cruise. Simply bask in the sun while getting away from all the routines at home, sample delicious Turkish dishes, visit historic places and above all enjoy the tranquil sailing along the fabulous Turkish coastline.

What about the weather?

The sailing season lasts from April until November. Turkey and Greece enjoy a Mediterranean climate with average temperatures of 25 degrees centigrade in April, May and October. At the height of the season (June – August) temperatures range from 30 to 35 degrees centigrade. It is not humid and it is unlikely to rain in the hottest months. Since we are out at sea most of the time the sea breeze offers some cooling in summer.

The Latin word ‘ventus’ means ‘wind’, hence our name. Wind is essential when sailing. All our traditionally built wooden Turkish yachts, gulets, are perfectly designed for sailing.

Meals & drinks on board

When it comes to food you are up for a feast in Turkey and Greece. Turkish and Greek cuisines are ranked among the world’s top cuisines, offering an endless array of delicious dishes with each region in Turkey and Greece having its own distinctive personality. The building blocks of the Turkish and Greek cuisine are fresh vegetables and fruit, seafood, grilled meat, mezzes (starters) and salads.
Mezes are served warm or cold and the more popular ones include borek (savory pastry stuffed with meat or cheese), stuffed aborigine, dolmas (green peppers and vine leaves stuffed with savory rice) and stuffed green peppers. All these separate dishes are served at once, accompanied by cacik (yoghurt with finely shredded cucumber and garlic), fresh bread and a bottle of raki or ouzo. Afiyet olsun! Bon appetit! Enjoy!

Our crew

Our Turkish crew usually consists of a captain, cook and two or three deckhands depending on the size of the yacht. They are very experienced, are continuously at your disposal and will cater to all your needs. The cook pampers you during the whole trip with Mediterranean specialties and the captain will ensure your safety at sea and will show you the most beautiful and picturesque coves and secluded bays. Between April and November we will try to sail whenever the wind gets strong enough and when you are experienced at sailing yourself feel free to assist the crew.

"Wederom genoten van 2 heerlijke weken. 1e week op de Laguna met kapitein Mehmet en chef Mustafa. 2e week op de Borina met de andere kapitein Mehmet en chef Zafer. Op beide schepen geweldig gezeild en geweldig gegeten. Bemanning zorgt dat je niks te kort komt. Lekker buiten slapen en zodra je een oog open doet staat een van de bemanning’s leden al met een kop koffie voor je. Daarna volgt een heerlijk ontbijt, waarna we na de briefing de zeilen hijsen en gelang de wind een aantal uur zeilen. Voor de lunch nog ff zwemmen of suppen waarna we in de middag nog een stukje gaan zeilen. De kapitein heeft intussen een mooie baai in gedachte waar we de nacht gaan doorbrengen. Na het dinner nog een afzakkertje en dan zoeken we weer een plekje op het dek om de sterren te bekijken en heerlijk in de buitenlucht te slapen. ( ja je kan ook gewoon in je hut gaan slapen). Deze vakantie is voor ons de totale ontspanning, en de 5 sterren zijn dan ook meer dan verdiend".
