After a turbulent few days of wild weather, 10 boats headed out into glassy waters and created a colourful spectacle of extras behind a backdrop of golden sunset skies. Thanks to Gulf Harbour Marina for another awesome and popular twilight series.

It's doesn't get much better than this! Gentle north easterly winds greeted a fleet of six ladies crewed yachts who enjoyed champagne sailing into the twilight under the watchful eye of the setting sun. Magic.

The forecast was light but the wind blew more than expected which allowed the fleet to finish the race course at Rakino and then head to Owhanake for beach games and walks around Waiheke. A wonderful weekend.
