What I enjoy most about sailing is being outside all the time. Wind, weather, sun and sea - non-stop. Even the nights I spend on deck under the open sky. To fall asleep slightly rocked by the sea and with a view on the starry sky is simply fantastic.
And not to forget the twilight mood and sunsets while being on a boat. Of course, sunsets can be wonderful on land, too. Most of the time, however, you choose a certain point to enjoy it for a rather short moment. At sea, however, one feels almost embedded in the atmosphere and is exposed to it much longer, from the first golden colouring of the afternoon until the first stars light up. Every day anew, at least when the weather allows for it.
Here is a small compilation for you, covering the different stages, from golden afternoon to the last rays of sunshine:
Thanks for watching and 'til next time!
