Steamers Run Day 1

A great day’s rowing in a stiff breeze blowing down the Sale Canal and la Trobe River. 20 rowers in four skiffs had a an easy row 16 km of protected waters with a following wind and favourable current.

Pelicans, a falcon and a sea eagle accompanied us for part of the journey. We are camped now by The Heart Morass – a nature reserve close by Lake Wellington.

Tomorrow brings 37 km crossing Lake Wellington, then traversing the McLennan Strait before travelling along Lake Victoria to Loch Sport.
