BCA members Michael and Kathy Swangard’s big dream of sailing the Mediterranean began with the wish to see the Adriatic…and ended with a love for the Turkish coast that, from a sailing perspective, surpassed everywhere else in the Med.  They found European and eastern culture galore, korfezi and gullets, carpets and apple tea, bazaars, and Greek ruins that outpace those in Greece. They learned world and religious history and experienced overwhelming friendliness from a generally well-educated coastal population.  All that, and great sailing, anchoring, marinas, and marine trades.

Buying their Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 393, Arctic Swan II in France gave them a wonderful head start and a number of advantages in their 5+ year journey.  Two years in Turkey and 5 years in the Med – they were sad to leave.  Join us on March 21st and hear their story.
