With perfect weather, the annual Bridge to Bridge Ski Classic was a spectacular sight, and sound, this morning as our usually quiet river gave way to fast, colourful action. Around 100 boats competed from all over Australia, along with a few overseas entrants, in various classes in the 108km race from our bridge to the next bridge downriver and back again. Superman won for the second year in a row with a record time of just over 36 minutes, reaching speeds of up to 180km (112 miles) per hour.
This is only the second time in 17 years of living in our town that I've watched the Bridge to Bridge (we are usually at church) and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
