27th Marmaris International Race Week, organized by Marmaris International Yacht Club, will take place between 29th October and 4th November.
 
Turkey’s and Eastern Mediterranean’s most participated sailing race, which has been held uninterrupted for 27 years, has hosted thousands of sailors from 30 different countries to this day. Despite the recent events that have taken place in our country, this year we are expecting 1,000 sailors to attend the race in 100 yachts. It just goes to show that the sailors are always in favour of peace and friendship.
 
After race events will take place in the 1000 m2 giant tent set up in Netsel Marina, which is one of the most important sponsors of the race week. Sailors will be entertained here with live music and various shows to recover from the day’s activity.
 
With the collaboration of Marmaris Municipality and attendance of guests from Marmaris’ sister city FÜRTH, an “Octoberfest” will be organized during the Race Week. Guests from Germany, donned in their traditional attire will present regional samples of their food. Musicians coming from Fürth region will also add joy to the evening with their traditional music. 
 
As the Board of Marmaris International Yacht Club we would like to state that it is very important to support this event which contributes greatly to the social and economic life of Marmaris at the end of tourism season.
 
We would like to thank Setur Marinas for sponsoring one of the evenings this year.
 
We would like to thank all our supporters starting with Ergo Sigorta, Netsel Marina and Marmaris Municipality for contributing us for a successful event.
