Water:: My First True Love: Sailing

Whilst on a mini adventure in Saldanha Bay a few years back I was invited to join a couple on their newly acquired Yacht.

IMG_4835I’d not made any plans for that day so meandered out to see what the weather was doing. I bumped into the owners of the bed and breakfast I was staying at who then asked about my plans for the day and whether or not I’d like to join them in celebrating their first voyage on their new, quite beautiful catamaran.

Trekking over to Langebaan (which is really not far), we started at the Yacht Club which is as all yacht clubs… really beautiful. The thing I love is the tinkling of rope on masts. Always gives me a run of goosebumps in anticipation of what is to come.

Absolutely breathtaking…

5 Star Luxury.

We sailed in the Langebaan lagoon for around 3-4 hours so I was able to get a really good perspective of the entire lagoon and what it had to offer. I lost myself in a few of the private beaches and nooks where a picnic would be magical.

Sharing here a sampling of the photos I took that day during my wonderful, simple yet quite exhilarating day out on the yacht.
