Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning exclusive yachts sailing Greece and Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. You may very well be searching for blue heaven because blue heaven is a unique search term appropriate for a sailing holiday and you are hoping to find something out of the ordinary. But whether searching for blue heaven or for the yacht Blue Heaven or simply for an exclusive yacht sailing Greece and Turkey, you have hit the jackpot. You have found a luxury yacht sailing Greece or Turkey or both. You have found a web page dealing with a ketch-rigged luxury yacht called Blue Heaven sailing both Greece and Turkey, luxury sailing among remote under-populated Greek Aegean islands and, as the first photograph on this page makes abundantly clear, along the southwest Turquoise Coast of Turkey with its white-sand beaches and pine-fringed Exclusive Sailing Greececlear-water coves. The Aegean and adjacent Turquoise Coast is fertile territory for luxury sailing and has been since before recorded history as Homer's Odysseus and Calypso attest. Ancient Lycia's Trojan heroes Sarpedon and Glaucus, too. Homer himself traveled the Aegean to and from his place of birth on the island of Chios. Lydia's Croesus, as well, the Croesus in as rich as Croesus. Persia's Great King Xerxes. Aspasia of Miletus, one of history's first liberated women and consort to Pericles of Classical Athens. The superthugs of the Peloponnesian War, Alcibiades and Lysander. The two Queens Artemisia of ancient Caria, admirals both. Memnon's lovely Barsine who was to become Alexander's companion and mother of his child. And then there was Alexander himself, Alexander of Macedon, who crossed the Hellespont into Anatolia in 334 BC. Among many others who sailed exclusively here in those early centuries were Alexander's principal lieutenants, his so-called Diadochi or successors, Ptolemy, later Ptolemy I Soter, Pharaoh of Egypt and forebear of Cleopatra, Antigonus the One-Eyed who declared himself King of Macedonia, and Seleucus, later Seleucus I Nicator founder of the Seleucid Empire. Upon the death of Alexander in 323 BCE these three emerged as his principal successors frequently at war with each other. Notable among the latter's descendants was Antiochus II Theos depicted at left. He was the grandson of Seleucus I Nicator and the Bactrian Princess Apama. The Seleucid Empire stretched at various times from Bactria (Afghanistan) in the east to Macedonia in the west. Antiochus II reigned during the fifteen years from 261 BCE. Early in his reign he was at war with the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, ruled as noted by another offspring of Alexander's empire, warring along Anatolia's Aegean coast and winning. He brought with him from his capital at Antioch (modern Antakya, Turkey) his wife and first cousin Laodice, a granddaughter of the same Seleucus I Nicator and the latter's bride Apama. Antiochus was fond of good times some of which he found at Hallikarnassus, modern Bodrum and hailing port of the ketch Blue Heaven. He also enjoyed himself at Aspasia's Miletus a bit further up the coast. It was in the liberation of Miletus that he obtained the sobriquet Theos, Greek for God. Upon winning the war with Ptolemaic Egypt and regaining parts of modern Turkey his father had earlier lost, Antiochus discarded and divorced Laodice, exiling her to Ephesus with their son Seleucus, Ephesus still further up the Turkish coast opposite Greek Samos. He then sealed his military victory by wedding Berenice, daughter of Egypt's Macedonian King Ptolemy II Philadelphus born on the Greek island of Kos opposite Halikarnassus. Berenice bore Antiochus another son who thereupon was declared heir apparent to the Seleucid throne. Laodice did not care for this development, her own son being a direct descendant on both sides of the empire's Macedonian founder. In fact, she was furious. She began

plotting. She plotted so deviously that Antiochus was seduced into abandoning Berenice, a plain-vanilla Macedonian without the cunning of her rival. Antiochus at age 40 returned to his first love who promptly slipped a little special-effect into one of his good-times libations. On his death bed, according to Laodice, Antiochus reversed himself and re-named Seleucus heir. Now the moral of this story is not that special effect kills gods as well as mortals, but rather that the Aegean hath no greater scorn than a woman furious. So whether you are dreaming of a Blue Cruise or are concerned about women, you might charter an exclusive sailing yacht to cruise through history along Turkey's southwest coast and among Aegean islands of Greece. Come aboard Blue Heaven, an exclusive sailing yacht offering a holiday par excellence. Come aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to show you the Dodecanese islands of Greece or Antiochus's route up the Turkish coast from Halikarnassus to Ephesus, able to show you as well the nearby Belevi monumental tomb where Antiochus is interred.
