    Why we have choosen "7 Seas" as our school name

    After the European discovery of America, some people used the term "Seven Seas" to refer to seven of the largest bodies of water in the world: The Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Arctic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico.

    As we are going to cruise on these waters with our trainees, we have chosen ''7 Seas Sailing School'' as our school name.

    IYT Worldwide "Master of Yacht" Sailing Instructor & Examiner

    Following my graduation from Turkish Naval Academy in 1987, I started working onboard naval ships and then on commercial ships for Oceangoing Deck Officer.

    My sailing career began in 1989 as a skipper. Until today, I worked in many different segments of marine sector such as rigging, technical yacht maintenance and ship chandlery.

    As I love the feeling of freedom at sea and the tranquility of sailing, I would like to share all my experience gained whilst cruising more than 90.000 nm under sail during these years with people who is willing to become a sailor and seaman.

    We prepared now a new programme for 2014 -2015, covering all the places we fell in love with. So we are ready to welcome all the sea lovers and provide them with a chance to be trained at any level in open sea and the ocean or just enjoy a great ''Sailing Holiday'' while we cruise in these blue waters.

    Looking forward to welcoming you on board,

    IYT Worldwide "YachtMaster" Sailing Instructor

    Although I started sailing in 2006 as a hobby, soon after I embraced sailing as a life style and I had an intensive training for 4 years to become an instructor. My passion for sea and sailing made me work very hard and I managed to log 23.000 nm in a very short time including Atlantic Ocean crossing 4 times.
    I enjoyed sailing in Aegean Sea, Med , Adriatic Seas, Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Seas.
    Now I am welcoming new friends onboard so that I can share all my experience not only sailing but also the sea life &living style . 
    Join us to feel the freedom of sailing and upgrade your level of sailing with us.
    Looking forward to seeing you on board.
