Cruising Association lecture describes unusual cruise from Turkey to Syria

In spring 2006, Jeremy and Gabby Waters took their elderly sloop Watershed east from their base in Kemer, Southern Turkey, along 300 miles of coastline rarely visited by cruising yachtsmen, and then south into Lattakia, Syria. Here they hired a car and driver, and for 10 days explored some of the county’s Crusader castles, souqs, mosques and Roman ruins. Everywhere they were made welcome. They returned to Kemer via Northern Cyprus, having not seen another yacht in a month’s cruising.

Jeremy and Gabby will be talking about their voyage in the latest of the Cruising Association’s series of spring lectures, on Thursday 21 February. The talk is held at CA House in Limehouse, London and commences at 7pm. CA members (£3), non-members (£6).
