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 crewed yachts sailing the Turkish coast may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. You are unlikely to be searching for Faralya because few have heard the appellation and fewer have any idea what it means. You therefore must be searching for a crewed yacht sailing Sailing Turkish Coastthe Turkish coast. Why else would a search engine have directed you here? In the event, you have found a pertinent web site as this page deals with a crewed yacht, a ketch-rigged motor-sailing yacht called Faralya sailing the southwest Turkish or ancient Lycian coast between Fethiye and Olympos. This coast of magnificent white-sand beaches and sheer mountain scarps borders the crossroads of history and has done so since before Herodotus wrote the first history text in the middle of the fifth century BC, as Homer's earlier epic poetry bears abundant witness with tales of Lycian heroes at Troy. Among many who sailed here after Herodotus was Erbbina depicted to the left in a relief from his fourth century tomb. Self-described as sagacious, brave, and deadly in combat, Erbbina was the son of Kheriga and the grandson of Arppakhu, all three Lycian dynasts or local kings ruling from ancient Lycia's most prominent city of Xanthos, and all three ruling at the pleasure of the Persian Great King enthroned at Susa in what is now west-central Iran. Erbbina ruled during the ten years from about 390 BC, assuming the position of dynast following the two-decade rule of his cousin or uncle Kherei. Upon the death of his father Kheriga there appears to have been civil conflict among various members of his family, and Erbbina, called Arbinas by Greeks, allied himself with Kherei. It was during this period as Kherei's young lieutenant that he made a name for himself. At the age of 20 he besieged and sacked the Lycian cities of Xanthos, Pinara, and Telmessos, each a formidable redoubt and each seeking to go its Sailing Turkish Coastown way. Telmessos was the Greek name for modern Fethiye, home port of the motor-sailing yacht Faralya. The yacht Faralya, it should be noted, is named for the village of Faralya located above nearby Butterfly Valley and under ancient Mount Cragus. One can well imagine Erbbina at "Telmessos of the fine harbor," as he described the port city, embarked aboard a 120-foot trireme propelled by 170 Lycian hoplites doubling as oarsmen, setting forth with other triremes to patrol sea lanes running east along the Lycian coast, or running west along the neighboring Carian coast, setting forth, for example, to join the Athenian Conon. It was in 394 BC that Conon assembled ninety triremes at the great natural harbor of Loryma in Caria. That year of the Corinthian War Persia allied herself with Athens, and with Phoenician, Lycian, and Carian warships Conon dealt a decisive defeat to a Spartan fleet off old Knidos, the modern Datca. As dynast, Erbbina later minted his coinage at Telmessos. Mindful of the gods, or politically correct, Erbbina during his reign dedicated statues to the goddesses Artemis and her mother Leto, and probably to the god Apollo, at the religious sanctuary of Letoon near Xanthos, and perhaps at Telmessos, as well. Erbbina is most famous today, however, not for his military or naval prowess, and not for dedications to the gods, but for building his own monumental tomb at Xanthos. Depicted at the right, this tomb was dubbed the Nereid Monument when Charles Fellows shipped it to the British Museum aboard HMVS Medea in 1844, so called because of life-size nereid or sea nymph statues between the columns of the tomb's Ionic colonnade. So whether you are dreaming of holiday sailing the Turkish coast or of sea nymphs swimming in its turquoise waters, you might charter a crewed sailing yacht to cruise through history at Turkey's crossroads of history. Come aboard Faralya, a crewed sailing yacht offering a holiday par excellence. Come aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to show you Erbbina's routes up the Turkish coast from Telmessos to Caunos to Loryma to Knidos, able to show you as well his routes down the Turkish coast past Butterfly Valley, Pydnai, Patara, Megisti, and Kekova Roads all the way to Olympos.
