Saturday 12th January was another fantastic day on the Murray River for our Social Paddle sponsored by RMarine Mandurah and Kununurra Lakeside Resort. We had about 45 participants overall on and off the water. The weather was perfect. Two support boats accompanied the paddlers who departed Pinjarra and made their way to the lunch stop where the sausage sizzle was supplied and prepared by Laurie from Kununurra Lakeside Resort – our lunchtime sponsor. The remainder of the supporters met us at the lunch stop and some enjoyed a swim before travelling back to Ravenswood on boats calling encouragement or shooting the paddlers with water as they passed.
A few of the paddlers retired after lunch and enjoyed the rest of the day hitching a ride on the houseboats.
The paddlers were all back at Ravenswood by about 3.30 so there was plenty of time to relax and have a swim before we got together to prepare the BBQ dinner – sponsored by RMarine Mandurah. A big thank you to all who pitched in and helped on the day. It can’t happen without you.
