Göcek Yacht Club
 
Gocek Yacht Club, an organization acting under Turkish Sailing Federation, was established in 1999 to develop sailing as a sport in the region, to raise awareness and interest in this sport and to provide training for children and youngsters in Gocek and neighboring villages.

The main objectives of Gocek Yacht Club are;
• to raise awareness about sea among children and youngsters
• to assist children to maintain and improve body-mind wellness, to guide them
• to raise and train sailors to represent our town and country in national and international races
• to preserve the culture of sea and pass this to the next generations


Most importantly; GYC's primary goal is to spread this sport among children especially coming from financially challenging families and provide these talented kids with free training which they cannot afford otherwise. 


To make this goal happen year after year, GYC organizes two regattas every year; one of these "annual" regattas take place in May and is called " Gocek Race Week - May 19, Youth & Sports Cup" and the latter one is held in November and is called " Autumn Race Week - November 10 - Atatürk Cup".  So far, GYC has successfully organized a total of 29 Race Weeks and hosted sailors from more than 15 countries. All income raised through these organizations have been invested in reaching more children and in making Sailing School's properties and conditions better for the trainees and licenced sportsmen.


Among the children and youngsters who attend the summer sailing schools, GYC provides advanced programmes for those who have talent and will to pursue this sport as a licenced Club sailor. Since its’ start 16 years ago, through GYC 's Sailing School programmes, more than 1500 children and youngsters from the region have been introduced with sea and sailing and hundreds  of them have represented  GYC successfully in numerous races both nationally and internationally.
