Around the begining and end of daylight saving time in SA, the club conducts an after dark sail with boats lit up with fairy lights. This year we had one on a Friday night in April and another is planned  in October to be held on a Wednesday Night. Prior to the event will be a BBQ. We will also again participate in the Mawson Lights event, look out for us by the footbridge.

It is a fun night not just for the members but for all who live near or by the lake, onlookers and walkers. It attracts many from young to all. 

Usually the fleet sails into the Promenade Lake in front of the coffee shops and restaurants, drawing onlookers, especially families and keen photographers.

Members of the Mawson Lakes Photography Club attended the April 2023 sail and took lots of pictures, some of which are included in our Gallery page. Acknowledgement and thanks to David and Ashley.from the ML Photography Club
