Sailing at the Gateway had been in my to-do-list for a long time. Finally this Sunday we went for our first sailing trip and it was an amazing experience. With good company and a pleasant weather we had a great time.
We started from Jetty No 5 at Gateway of India in a small rowing boat (seen in the picture below), and in the middle of the sea we changed to our sailing boat. It looked scary initially but our skipper made sure that all of us were comfortably transported.
We spent close to two hours sailing in the sea and it was so different from our daily chaos. A welcome break from our daily routine life.

There are many companies in Mumbai which provides these boats and also conducts training/courses for sailing. Some have membership for individuals and families. It’s worth exploring.
