Tyw 10 Year 59059

10th Anniversary Party, London


We told you we had been scheming something extra special for our 10th anniversary year… Well guess what? London was just the beginning.

Waltzing through the dignified doors of The In & Out Naval and Military Club in St James’ Square was debatably more awe-inspiring than listening to the eargasmic crescendo of Adele’s new single. A truly momentous moment! Granted, the enjoyment of walking inside may have been due to the heavens opening seconds before the event started. London’s weather stealing the spotlight once again.


But within a matter of minutes we were right as rain, so to speak, thanks to the white gloves holding out endless glasses of champagne served on silver platters. As much as the rain poured outside, so too did the Veuve Clicquot flow inside.


The foyer filled up quickly with an extended look-alike cast of the Great Gatsby; men looking ever-so-dapper in their black bow-ties and girls dressed to the nines in their neck-breakingly beautiful dresses and high-heels; neck-breaking for different reasons.

I mean who doesn’t love a fancy dress party… But the real question is: do you love a fancy dress party more than the second guy? Impossible.


Employees, family, friends, skippers, hostesses, past, present and future TYW guests all hushed to the sounds of clinking glasses as the founders took to the carpeted stairs to deliver their welcome toast. Which quickly turned into a live comedy act with a hint of an inspiring presidency speech. Something only Swedes can do. Come to think of it, I don’t know why they didn’t also break into a “Happy Birthday to TYW” ballad? Maybe next time guys.


At 7pm dinner was served… And served it was! Seared salmon for starters, filet mignon for mains and death-by-chocolate for dessert. Did I mention the wine pairing with each course? A feast fit for a king I tell you! I heard one hostesses whisper she could cook them under the table. Brave call.


Once dinner was all said and devoured, guests descended the stairs in a wave of excitement. Met by 300 more who arrived for the cocktail party, bringing the numbers up to a festive crowd of 600 people all raring to go. It was now time for The Yacht Week to do what we do best – sail? Nope – partay. Yes, the ‘a’ in partay is both intentional and for added effect.


Another reason to skip down the stairs, and then pause for Fabian to take a photo, was because 100 TYW inspired bottles of Orillo Vodka awaited us downstairs and they weren’t going to drink themselves! The vodka was great, but we think the labels were the best part. Yes, we’re a little biased.. All hail Glenn; designer of everything that is TYW and a recently accomplished vodka label illustrator. You go Glenn Coco!


With The Yacht Week veteran DJs in the mix, it was almost as if every single person had the same hypothesis to prove: ‘You can take the person out of The Yacht Week, but you sure as hell can’t take The Yacht Week out of the person.’  The night’s conclusion would be anyone’s guess…


Yes, it truly was one hell-of-a 10th birthday bash! Thank you to everyone who came, saw and conquered the dance-floor.

Re-live all the shenanigans and find your new profile pic in the Facebook album.

Are you wishing you could go back and do it all over again? Well, I must be a genie in a bottle baby because your wish is granted! We will be going back to the future in true Stockholm style for a whole weekend of celebrations. (One #BTTF joke too far, ok enough now) The best part about that event is that we will all be sleeping TYW style on a massive steel ship. I mean honestly, you would just be silly not to.

Tickets and info about Stockholm are on the Facebook event.

See you Sweden.

New Turkey Trailer 2015


This year The Yacht Week had our first taste of true Turkish Delight with a pioneering voyage around the rural Turquoise Route.

Amongst the whispers in the aftermath, we’ve heard guests say: ‘50 Shades of Turquoise would have been a more fitting route name.’ Arguably the best feedback we’ve had all year.

A huge thanks to Nick and Gabs from Unit 9 Films, who vividly captured the first sparks of a Summer romance between The Yacht Week and Turkey.

It’s time to impress those pupils.

New Turkey Trailer 2015


We caught up with Nick and Gabs to get a deeper insight into their filming experience in Turkey, let’s see what this dynamic duo had to say for themselves:

As virgin Yacht Weekers what were your initial thoughts?

N&G: We had heard a lot about The Yacht Week but we didn’t really know what to expect. But I honestly think we got way more than what we had expected! It was just awesome.


What’s the story and inspiration behind the trailer?

N&G: It was more about capturing the essence of The Yacht Week and Turkey simultaneously rather than having a structured story line. We focused more on how we were going to join this collection of moments together. So, we continuously strived to find new and interesting ways to transition these snapshots of Turkey.

What was it like filming TYW in Turkey?

N&G: Everything is so beautiful and picturesque, with the small secluded bays and 35 degree weather… It made our job easy, we basically just had to switch the camera on. Turkey spoke for itself.

We had to keep reminding ourselves that it was not a holiday, we were there to work. But we got most of our chill (tanning) time whilst we were sailing because we got a lot of sailing footage from the first day. But crunch time came when we docked at each new spot, we would hop off and scout the surroundings and meet new people to see what we could work with.


What did you love most about Turkey?

Turkey is one of the least famous places to go on holiday within that part of the Mediterranean. I mean you have Greece, Italy, etc. right next door and those are the ones that everyone raves about. But that was the appeal for us, I was surprised by how beautifully remote and intimate everything was. I can only compare Turkey to what I imagine other routes to be like, but I can sense from what everyone else was saying there was a way more intimate environment, which meant the parties became really exclusive to Yacht Weekers and everyone became so close. 

Each different destination has its own quirks, Turkey has a unique way of welcoming people, the landscapes are their own – seeing minarets dotted around and the general Asian aura Turkey gave off was great. I think that was the most beautiful part about the trip.

And, of course, you have the Turkish hospitality, people are so nice and welcoming. It really is a thing: The Turkish hospitality.


What do you think makes your video unique to other TYW videos?

N&G: The Yacht Week has a good standard of videos, and because this was the inaugural event for Turkey, we were trying to capture Turkey above, I guess, everything else. Capturing all the awesome parties and people was important, but even more importantly, highlighting the rich earthy tones of Turkey and the beauty of travelling to whole new place, a culture which is probably very different from the places most guests come from.

Overall, your favourite part? 

N&G: The Turkish sunsets. We were sailing from island and island in the evening and the water was completely flat like glass. It had that mirror effect and reflected the sunset off the water.


Some exciting news: Such was the great feedback from you guys, we have decided to open Turkey to everyone for four weeks next year. Hoorah! Next year’s summer bookings open in two weeks! If you haven’t done so already, check out all the details about the Turkish event here. We think you’ll like it!

10. Feel like you’re flagging?

If style indecision has washed over you like a tidal wave, here’s a little Yacht Week tip.
