Five Great Ways To Use The Extra Hour Of Sunlight

March 09, 2012

1. Sail on an America's Cup Yacht

If you live near San Francisco, and you have a need for speed, adrenalin, and the latest America’s Cup technology, sign up for a ride on USA 76, the 84-foot, all carbon racing yacht from the 2000′s. You won’t want to miss a chance at the helm of this sleek, black, winning machine. Public and private charters are available. Visit ACSailingSF Next Level Sailing, in San Diego, has one of our old IACC boats, Abracadabra, USA 50. Here she is, under sail in Hawaii in 1999...     and a decade or more later, she's now available for charter in San Diego...

2. Enjoy a Sunset Gondola Ride

You don't have to fly to Venice, Italy to enjoy the beauty and romance of a sunset Gondola ride.  Whatever harbor you're in, grab your sweetheart, a couple of fleece jackets and a warm blanket, and relax as the Gondolier takes you on a leisurely ride.

3. Watch a Spectacular Sunset - Shaken, Not Stirred 

During the winter months, the sun sets before Happy Hour. With an extra hour of sunlight, you can now enjoy Happy Hour as you watch the sun set from your favorite waterside establishment, even if that happens to be your own patio, (lucky you!). If you're not quite that lucky, but lucky enough to live in Newport Beach, you might try the unparalelled sunset ocean view from the bar at 21 Oceanfront. Tell Tony you'd like yours shaken, not stirred!  

4. Take Your Friends Out on an Electric Boat

If you haven't taken a cruise on an electric boat yet, you're in for a real treat. It's hard to beat a leisurely cruise with friends, gliding along silently with a little wine & cheese, and your favorite CD playing, as you enjoy the sun, water and sights. Newport Harbor may be the most popular harbor in the world for electric boats, but many other harbors also offer electric boats for rent by the hour or day. With an extra hour of sunlight, you have even more reason to go for a cruise! You can rent a Duffy Boat at: Newport Beach  Palm Desert   Ft. Lauderdale  Seattle    Fawn Harbor, CA   Marina del Rey, CA  Long Beach, CA    Baltimore/Annapolis    Oxnard, CA    Chattanooga, TN   Ocean Shores, WA Frankenmuth, MI    Tokyo    Gold Coast, AU   Northbridge NSW, AU  Singapore    Taiwan    Cancun   

 5. Take the Dog for a Beach Walk

If the beach near you is like ours, it has limited hours when dogs are allowed - usually early morning and late afternoon/evening. With the shorter days of winter, beach walks with the dog are nearly impossible. So, grab the dog and take advantage of the extra hour of sunlight - it'll do you both a world of good! Enjoy the daylight... by the water! DJ
