The waterways of the region are magnificent, and the best way to explore them is to hitch a ride with Hardys Bay Ya cht Charters (4360 1442). Anna McCall and her partner Kent Sheppard – both keen sailors themselves – offer clients a range of sailing experiences on Brisbane Wa ter, Broken Bay, Pittwater and the Hawkesbury River.
