I spent the week visiting my friends Corli and Frikkie in the coastal town of Richards Bay in South Africa.  I used to live just outside Richards Bay which has a subtropical climate so it’s quite warm all year round. It was hot and sunny all week, perfect weather for a yacht trip!

Richards Bay actually boasts the country’s largest harbour and some of its most magnificent wetland scenery. Out Yacht cruise took us through one part of the harbour and back to the yacht club as the sun was setting!! It was an amazing experience and I loved sailing into the sunset!!
