Sailing in Turkey is easy, if you consider the summerly main winds.

The wind ist mostly from NW or N, sometimes from NE. Northerly, Meltemi (Etesien) wind can be very strong for days, and even blow all night!
The turkish coastline south of Cape Knidos (greek island of Kos) is relatively safe from strong Meltemi, but 3-5 Bft. are quite normal.
In August, east of Marmaris, there is often calm sea, it is very hot and can be no wind for days. It is recommended, to search the nice cooling winds east (Goekova Bay), west (Aegaean sea and Dodecanese/Greece) and north of Bodrum (Kusadasi and Cesme) at this time, if you are able to deal even with a strong Meltemi-period. In the ideal case, you can sail a chartered boat down from Cesme or Kusadasi south-easterly to Bodrum or Marmaris. Sailing "upwards" from Marmaris or Bodrum to Cesme or Kusadasi is a funtrip for sportive sailing crews!
