Yacht races in Marmaris

This year’s record attendance at the annual yacht race in Marmaris has contributed greatly to the tourism town’s economy and publicity, officials said.

Yalçın Çetin, president of the Marmaris International Yacht Club, or MIYC, who organized the event, said there are 121 sailing boats in competition and racers come from 16 different countries, who are expected to spend approximately $1 million in town.

The 19th International Yacht Festival, sponsored by Koç Allianz Sigorta, Netsel Marina and Marmaris Municipality, started last weekend and will end Friday. MIYC President Çetin said 50 groups will attend the 92 sea mile race with their own yachts and 71 groups are renting boats at 3,000 euros each. This equals 215,000 euros in total. With money spent by the yachters during their stay, the event will mean $1 million in income for Marmaris.
