Lots of noise and action in our town this weekend with the annual Bridge to Bridge Ski Classic. Over 150 of the world's fastest water ski race boats roar up and down the river in practice and then racing.
Although cool and windy this morning there was no rain until the races were over. The main race is over 108 km, leaving from our town, heading down river to the next bridge and then returning.
They reach speeds of nearly 200km (125 miles) per hour and can easily be heard from our house, a few blocks from the river.
The boats have a staggered start for safety reasons, yet sometimes end up very close together by the finishing stages.
We usually miss all the action as our Sunday mornings are reserved for church, however some of our family had out-of-town sport commitments this weekend, leaving the rest of us without transport. Quite an exciting outing for those of us who could make it.
