We heard them (from home) well before we saw them! This weekend our river is the location for the third round of the Australian Formula Powerboat GP series with F1, F2 and F3 classes racing.
Holding an umbrella in one hand and snapping shots with the other, Master T and I enjoyed watching for a good while this afternoon. Tomorrow promises to be finer weather, better for competitors and spectators alike.
The river last night was much calmer - and quieter!
Have a wonderful weekend whatever your weather.
UPDATE: On our way home from church Sunday (I was driving) the children noticed one of these super fast F2 boats bobbing vertically in the water with the other boats stationary near by. No more racing was heard for a good while. Apparently there had been a crash between two boats near the start line, one boat (recently imported from Europe) may be a write-off, but most importantly, no one was injured.
