Huon River Sail

A truly amazing time was had. The weather was very calm (a little too calm for sailing,but what can you do about that...lol) Hosts were fantastic, even including us in the sailing process. I wld recommend this to anyone...those who love to sail, as well as those who have never sailed before.
