In 2018, it will be 10 years for our High Point Yacht Fest! We have decided to celebrate that milestone by going back to where we started, Gocek, Turkey. It has always been one of the favourite sailing grounds for all of us and we have always had a tremendous support from our local partners and friends.

We will sail out of Gocek and spend five days around the bay of Fethiye. We will race during the days and overnight in charming bays such as Kapi Creek, Wall Bay and Sarsala. We will visit Fethiye too and dine in the famous fish market. Our Gourmet Roux night will take place on the Thursday of the week. It is always a highlight of the event. There is a lot to look forward to!
