Gulet Sailing holidays are an amazing way to spend your holidays. But you have to know a couple of things when it comes to sailing and gulets in general before you book your holidays. In this blog post, we explain it all with a help of captain on board of deluxe gulet Blue Heaven!
If you are still trying to find out if gulet blue cruise holidays are appropriate for you this post will be very useful if you like sailing.

If the things you like are more important for you than things which you do not like…
then gulet sailing might be for you!
If you are searching for genuine sailing holidays then you have to know 3 crucial things when it comes to gulets:
1) MOST GULETS DO NOT SAIL OR SAIL VERY FEW TIMES!
Gulets are called motor sailors. This means they go on motor mostly but they can also sail. But not all of them. Some gulets do not even have sails.
Other gulets have a crew that is not very keen on sailing. While some gulets are just not built for sailing.
So if sailing is incredibly important to point for you – YOU MUST NOTICE THIS WHEN YOU SEND THE INQUIRY TO YOUR AGENT!
2) IF THERE IS NO WIND – YOU WILL NOT SAIL!
Even if we promise you some great sailing and you come to Turkey and for 7 days there is no winds…you will not sail. Sorry. We can not affect the weather. Also if you are used to sailing with 40 feet sailing yachts which need very little wind to actually sail….gulets are much bigger, heavier vessels so they also need some more wind to actually sail.
3) IF YOU WILL SAIL A LOT – GIVE THE CREW A BREAK!
If your entire crew will be occupied with sailing do not expect them to serve you champagne along the way. They will be busy to keep you happy while sailing and until they stop in some bay and get back to “normal stuff” they do you will have to give them a break.
Also if you decide to help during the sailing procedure it will be a great experience for you and helpful for them.
