Responsible tourism: Sailing vacation in Turkey & Greece
What better way to responsibly fuel your vacation experience on the Mediterranean coast than by harnessing the power of wind and water? With no engine sound and minimal pollution, sailing is an environmentally friendly recreational pastime. It is interlinked with, and invites an understanding and an appreciation of the natural environment. This relationship with the elements is perhaps one the most enjoyable parts of the entire cruising experience.
Whilst on board, soaps and washing up liquids should of course be eco friendly, much of the sailing world already practices an awareness in the this regard; we provide eco friendly detergents on our vessels. We also encourage our guests to take this idea on board when packing their toiletries.
We supply each catamaran with a welcome hamper packed full of fresh fruit and vegetables sourced from and in association with Fruit Heritage Conservation. This is a unique local organisation striving to preserve heritage fruit varieties developed by local people over several centuries; to protect the ecologically friendly agricultural practices associated with producing the fruits; and maintaining their contribution to the local economy as well as food security.
Fruit Heritage is working towards maintaining these varieties so they may continue to be a reliable source of food and income for local villagers. Your vacation will support this campaign by adding to the demand for this wholesome produce, and hence encouraging local farmers to maintain the old farming techniques that are sadly in decline along with many indigenous varieties of local fruit. Please contact us if you would like more information on this project.
In addition, the operation at base camp employs local support staff and local captains who work alongside experienced international captains who reside in Turkey and train assistants and employees.
