And folk get out there in boats.
The first cruise ship of the season slid in the other day at 5am to give 3000 people a taste of Hobart. I cannot claim it was the best day for them but by the time they weighed anchor to continue their cruising, the skies had cleared and the evening was beautiful. Well, they deserved to have something to remember.
There is a very full schedule of large ships coming this year. So the local sailors get the waters as they can.
But as happens every year, the opening of the sailing season (I didn't know there was one) saw the Parade of Sail that I have shown before. So, for the sailors here - James at the helm - I give you a small show around.
Some prefer to be really independant and fast !
Others like a friends along.
It can get quite crowded out there.
Have a long, cool drink.
