Hey Tara! I'm interested in doing the Turkish Sailing trip mid to late May of 2015. I noticed that was around the same time you went. I wanted to ask if the water felt warm or if it was still chilly. Thanks in advance and your review was really informative.

The week we were there the weather was quite warm so the water was a little shocking when jumping in. The water was about 25degrees but it was the fact that our body temperature was so warm that made the water feel a little shocking. Didn't stop us at all though. Any time the boat stopped moving our group was in the water. I'm a travel agent in Canada if you need assistance in booking your trip or pre-post sailing help I'd love to help.
Hi Tara! I just read your review and wondered if I could ask you a question? I'm packing for this trip now - do I need any pants? A towel? And I assume there are plugs on the boat? Thanks so much! Your review was really helpful!

My suggestion would be to pack a pair of pants and a sweat shirt. We had one day were it was a little chilly and a couple of our evenings were cooler. I was very thankful to have pants and a hoodie. It's probably warmer this time of year but I think it's a good thing to pack just in case. They do have towels in your cabins for showering purposes. They do not allow those towels out onto the deck of the ship. For swimming and suntanning, you may want to bring your own towel. They do have towels on the deck that we used but they also use them to clean the boat so it's not the most sanitary. Better to bring your own. There are plugs on the ship. They only have power in the evenings when th generator is running.
