Day 7 – 03.08.2020

On Day 7, the Bering Yachts expedition has finally crossed an “equator”. In other words, the travelers climbed up the Aegean coast of Turkey to reach a small village Ayval?k that is the furthest point of travel. However, the true goal was an ancient Pergamum, which lies some 25 km deeper inland. As if Izmir, Kayakoy or Ephesus were not enough Pergamum looks even more magnificent. Probably this is the largest well preserved ancient city in western Turkey. With breathtaking views from Acropolis Pergamum really deserves to be the “equator” point of the trip. Battling through heavy seas Bering70 reached Ayval?k in the morning after 8 hours of travel. Due to its large displacement, the yacht managed to make steady progress despite the sea state. The fuel consumption was not affected by the weather – again around 120 l spent to cover 70 miles. After night of rest, the crew was hungry for impressions so Hysucat hydrofoiling RIB was at

Day 6 – 02.08.2020

Leg 6, Ku?adas? – ?zmir: Bering70 enters ancient Smirna On August 2, the Bering Yachts’ expedition arrived at Izmir. This means that the trip that started on July 28 in Kemer has almost reached its furthest point. Having passed more than 430 miles in 5 days, Bering70 has only one point left before the voyage will turn back to the south. Nevertheless, before that the third largest Turkish city has to be explored. The Ku?adas? – ?zmir leg is also one of the longest in the Bering70’s voyage – 110 miles. To cover that distance the yacht travelled for 14 hours at average speed on 7.5 knots. The pair of Cummins 350 HP engines consumed around 225 l of fuel. Again, as it was on the night before, the sea was heavy, but everything was relatively quiet onboard thanks for gyroscopic stabilizer. Bering70 arrived to vicinity of Izmir harbor at 10.30 in the morning and impatient crew decided to use

Day 4-5 – 01.08.2020

Leg4-5: Bodrum- Ku?adas?. Bering70 crew witness the holy places After occasional free day in Yalikavak the Bering Yachts’ expedition has regained its pace. In the night shift from July 31 and August 1, the crew moved from Bodrum peninsula to ancient Ku?adas?. But the plans were far more extensive. The crew sought to reach the ancient city of Ephesus – probably the most famous city of the region. Bering70 yacht has covered the 70 miles leg in due course of 7 hours. Due to regular strong NW Meltemi wind Aegean sea is known for its rude temper but everything was quiet onboard Bering70. While it was fresh and a bit bumpy outside, the stabilization system perfectly smoothed the ride. At the dawn of August 1, the crew left the yacht on Hysucat hydrofoiling RIB to reach quickly the shore as the day schedule was tight. Being a nice and cozy resort Ku?adas? visit was limited only to short stroll on

Leg3: Fethiye-Bodrum where East meets West There is one small downside with all this expeditions: you just cannot help but fall in love with the places you visit. This exactly what happened to the Bering Yachts’ crew that set out for pocket-odyssey trip from Kemer on July 28th. On the beginning of Day 3 the crew has managed to cover almost 250 miles in three nights and on July 30th reached Bodrum peninsula. What a day it was! First, let us talk the trip. Bering70 with Hysucat hydrofoiling RIB towed left Fethyie on July 29th evening heading west. The weather was fresh with uneasy seas. It took more than 10 hours to cover the distance around 120 miles with average 8 knots of speed. For this trip, Bering70 consumed around 230 l of fuel. Unlike the mornings of Days 1 and 2, the third morning the crew was underway. Still there were several things worth early waking. On the down,

Bering 70 explorer yacht does the main job while Hysucat hydro foiling RIB guarantees that no tiny bay or inlet will be missed.

The Day 2 started again at the beautiful anchorage in the turquoise waters of Ölüdeniz that is world-famous for its Caribbean style beach. Locals complained that Olüdeniz – a magnificent two-kilometre crescent of gently sloping shingle – is too crowded, but Viewed from the sea this small paradise looks even more beautiful as the sunbathing crowds do not hinder your view. In addition, there are many
