Budget yachting on a warm summer’s eve


Budget yachting is a pastime we should all be taking greater advantage of, all the time (as we’ve discussed before) but there’s nothing quite like being out in the middle of the bay on a warm summer’s evening, darkness all around you except for a few familiar beacons off in the distance, whiskey in hand.
