Have you ever seen how quickly Moreton Bay can change. These graphs are from Sunday night, that’s a shift of over 40knots in less than 15 minutes. We were involved in three separate incidents last night and there were countless more jobs for the Water police and other VMR and Coastguard units. Always keep an eye on the weather and know it can change in minutes.

An interesting snippet from our watery back yard. ...

Could you paddle a canoe all the way from Gold Coast to North Stradbroke Island? How about if you had to hand make the canoe beforehand? Gold Coast author Benjamin Allmon and Bundjalung–Yugambeh canoe maker, Kyle Slabb will embark on a three-day journey that follows an ancient First Nations maritime trade route from Gold Coast to North Stradbroke Island. This 70km sea voyage has connected the Goories or Saltwater People across the water from the Gold Coast to North Stradbroke Island for thousands of years. Joined by their friends and family, the pair will embark on their journey from Home of the Arts with a traditional Nyalangi Ceremony (Nyalangi meaning “We will see you again”) this Saturday from 7am. You can find out more about their journey at The Saltwater Story

Oh and why not one more group photo.
Thanks Cheryl and Bruce for the photo.

Another fantastic joint QSKC and Sandgate Canoe Club Olympics held earlier today.
In the spirit of friendly (competitive) relay races, five teams were put through their paces testing forward paddle, backward paddle, 360 turns, rope knots, assisted and self rescue, swim and drag, and the big balance.
All participants donated a $5 entry and teams were racing for the total donation to go to a charity allocated to each team.
The winners were Team Five and their Charity was the Smith Family $160. Big round of applause.
Thank you all for your laughter and joy. What a FUN morning.
Thank you Gary for your organisation and unbiassed judging skills, Kay for the delightful yoga stretch and Tony the BBQ.
Ian thanks for the photos.
