Your sunset sail begins at Rose Bay, Sydney where your hosts for the evening Clare & Paul will welcome you aboard a beautiful 58-foot sailing yacht, Pilgrim.
After a full briefing to ensure everyone feels comfortable and safe, Pilgrim will head out into the Harbour and pull up sails.
The itinerary will depend on the wind on the day, but will always include a sail past the Sydney Opera House, under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and past other highlights on Sydney Harbour (e.g. Fort Dennison, Luna Park, Circular Quay etc).
On board, there is a selection of different Tamburlaine Organic Wines on board (note: no red wine) for guests to enjoy. Alternatively, if you’re a non-wine drinker, premium beers and soft drinks are available too.
There is also a selection of delicious cheeses and accompaniments to enjoy with your drinks as you relax and enjoy the views.
Pilgrim is the perfect yacht for a sunset cruise. She's stable and very comfortable with a large foredeck and two cockpits - so plenty of seating and space for you to spread out and relax.
The number of guests is kept to a minimum to ensure a very personal service to you - whether you want to learn about sailing, have a go a helming the boat or just sit back and relax.
