Naracoorte Sail Weekend

Postby HelloSailor » 20 Nov 2017 22:07

Hi All , Well our yearly run to Naracoorte has been and gone. They had 80mm of rain on the Wednesday & Thursday leading up to our arrival , and as a result , this created an algael bloom on the water , which was not pleasant , as it clung to ships hulls like glue. The weather behaved itself for the weekend , getting quite warm on Saturday. Had the usual suspects from both SA & Vic , with Karl down from Canberra. Always attends our weekend. Hopefully Bruce ( B2 ) may post some photos and Haigh from FBV with some from his sub. Sunday turned out to be a pleasant day , with a light breeze , which dissipated the algae to a great proportion. Not as many public visiting over the weekend as in the past , as there were other events on around the district. Next years event will be held on the weekend of Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th , so put the dates in your calendar. Cheers, Jim

Attached are photos at Naracoorte taken from my camera and video stills from the Tug and Submarine video cam.

Kermit would have loved it. It was all green, but underwater visibility was very poor and that compromised the submarine videos.

There is a submarine 'incident' with the 'Akula' that was being tracked by HMS Triumph at the time, captured by the subcam.

It was still a great weekend. Hopefully the water quality will be pristine again next year.

Thanks for photos Bruce. :tup:

Nice shots from Tugcam and Subcam - nice detail too :clap:
Pity about the green water.

Great to see a good turnout by the boys of FBV - sorry I could not be there - grounded till after Christmas
