Every summer, the local yachties gather on Wednesdays for Twilight Sailing. The pier is the start line and they muster in the bay behind it, busily jostling for position, even before the race starts! The race begins at 5.30pm when the hooter at the Yacht Club blasts.
They sail dreamily along the water for a couple of hours, returning to the finish line around 7.30pm, just before nightfall. First yacht in gets another blast from the hooter.
We take some cool drinks and a picnic down to the waterfront and enjoy the sight of all the beautiful white sails, backlit by the setting sun. Best way ever to chill out, after a hot summer's day.
