Rene & Edith

Alondra is normally sailing with 2 crew, a Captain and one sailor – cook, who both know the Med inside out. Mehmet, 28 – Bodrum. A born Seaman and that shows. Like a fish in water he knows Alondra and how to please her guests. He will take you to wherever you want to go but most likely you will meet a few of his friends in the wider area who all welcome him as the ‘lost son’. There is no place or he will know the people and they know him. There are literally hundred of spots to chose from but he will take you to that one special place for sure.  And besides… he is a fine chef! Speaks fluent English and Turkish of course. A trustworthy Captain. He for sure looks forward receiving you aboard and take you out on an ‘Amazing Alondra Sailing Holiday’

René  – 22-06-1963, Dutch and a life time sailor with a wide pal-mares like the East Mediterranean Yacht Rally (2005), winning the world renowned Kings Cup in Thailand (2009 (1e place) – 2010 (3d)) and the famous ‘Bodrum Cup’ in the Med.

In 2011 he lead the TTT (Thailand to Turkey) convoy through the pirate infested waters around Somalia and the Red Sea with around 30 participating yachts. When he first laid eyes on Alondra in 2004 he immediately fell in love and knew this was the one and only ship he wanted to own. The dream came true and together with his wife Edith he sailed and lived for 8 years on board before returning to the most beautiful waters they knew. The South West coast of Turkey and Greece.
