Comments: This is the most water that Yealering has had in its lake in 27 years! To celebrate, the town threw a Regatta and Market day, where it appeared every man and his dog came to town. And I must say, I was a little jealous of some of the DYI water craft that were getting a run that day; the rubber duckie team sitting on milk crates, the Emu Export bikes on keg and an honourable mention to the Oktoberfest chaps with their picnic table and umbrella.
Mike, Tom and I were busy running mini lessons for the local kids, but during our break, we were able to go for a cruise further out past the jetty. Unfortunately, the winds were blowing a small gale (with gusts up around 40-50km/hr mark) so once we had enough of paddling into the wind, we enjoyed a fast downwind session back to our base. Wonderful day and friendly locals.
