Akaroa Harbour is a sheltered and popular sailing spot. There were dozens of yachts like these to be seen from Beach Road. In the centre is Dixie but I can’t make out the names of the other two yachts. On the other side of the harbour is Wainui village and the hills of the Peraki Saddle Reserve. I choose to photograph three boats on purpose as things often look better as an odd number. It was also a little tricky to frame this without getting half of another boat on the edge of the picture.
