Sailing is an exhilarating experience - priceless

Yacht we sailed in at Mandwa

The best thing about our recent weekend in Alibaug (Radisson) was sailing with Aquasail in Mandwa harbour.

The husband, me and 3 boys (10-12 years old) went sailing in 2 yachts at Mandwa. We went to the Aquasail centre near the Mandwa jetty – got briefly instructed after a welcome drink.

The facility at Mandwa is an oasis of green, with large loos and shower facilities (males and females). Also has some hammocks strung up in the garden for a nice rest under the trees. Several yachts can be seen in a shed. Others are on the beach and were beckoning to us..

After wearing our life jackets, leaving our watches, phones wallets etc behind in safe keeping, we crossed the road onto the beach where several yachts bobbed in the waves.

It was post lunch, a beautiful breeze made sure the bright sunlight didn’t bother us at all.  

Into the boats, (leaving our footwear behind), the kids in one with an instructor and the adults in another – and off we went into the high seas!
Be ready to get wet and learn how to handle the yacht (more like a dummies express guide)

It’s an unbelievable experience to be on the water, experiencing the breeze in the sails! Exhilarating – I can’t wait to go sailing again..

Aquasail offers a lot of options ranging from a half day out on the water, to classes for children and more.

Strongly recommended for Mumbaikars and  visitors from landlocked interiors.

Go soon – its an experience like no other – Priceless (like Mastercard?)
Check them out and book a sail – Mumbai at Gateway of India, Mandwa and even Goa!
