Clyde River Salvage Company

Nothing much ever happens at "Riverbend" except when a neighbour's craft breaks down and my trusty "Lady Anne" has to spring into action to tow the stricken vessel back to its mooring.

This is what happens just now when "Delta Lady" required a tow from "Lady Anne". It was a very lady-like affair!

Ring of Bright Waters

A splendid morning for paddling greeted the Bay Adventure Kayakers who attended Saturday’s time trial at Nelligen. The trial commenced just as the high tide was turning, so the times for the second lap for those paddling the 10km distance were appreciably slower than the first lap as paddlers had to paddle against a stronger running tide.

Bay Adventure Kayakers inaugural annual general meeting will be held on December 5 at 10.30am after the time trial. The meeting is to be held at the club’s unofficial headquarters at Café Nelligen.
