Great trip. A gentle evening with little breeze. The sail was hoisted and we sailed quietly up the harbour. Coming back we had to use power though. Sailing at night was wonderful. Some of us even got to steer the yacht. That was an experience that was in itself worth the trip. The food was very good. I will do this again.
