Through the Bosporus strait
Day 95, August 1st 2023
After so many weeks, we are finally here
Bosporus-N to the marina outside Bosporus-S
Not quite the same skyline as what met Harald Hardraade
After the late arrival on Monday evening, we were eager to have our passports checked in. We had to go through the Bosporus strait to do this at the office at the southern end of the strait, so we asked the Coast Guard to follow us through. It was a really pleasant and special feeling to pass under the bridges and see the people and boats and some big ships.
We were not allowed to sail, so we had to go by the electrical pods.
We arrived at Setur Marina around 4 PM and got a nice longside pier place. A welcome committee was there, consisting of the Chief of the Marina and some other people, among those from the Rahmi Koch Museum.
