For the fourth time the biggest multihull event in the eastern Med is taking place. The area this time is the Bozburun Peninsula near Marmaris. The period of the event guarantees temperatures around 25 to 30 degrees and stable thermic winds. This way, the 2010 Multihull Sailing Week will again combine fun, racing, social gathering and tasty food.
Comments from the last event:
"It was an excellent event, and we had a lot of fun" and "... many thanks for the superb event that you organised. Terry and I really enjoyed ourselves." This is the inspiration to bring the third event to full success too. "COME BECK comes back!"
The 6-day-event starts on the evening of Saturday, May 8th and ends on the evening of Friday the 14th with the awards ceremony.
The Bozburun Peninsula is located in the south-western Turkish Aegean Sea with picturesque scenery and dreamlike bays, which are reminiscent of the Norwegian fjords, yet with 25 degrees in the shadow and blue sky.
Prevalent winds in this season: West to North-West.
