back to listing
||Managed to 'row' the boat to shore whereby approximately 12 people were required to take it from the water. All people involved were uninjured. |
||Late morning paddle in bow-loading 4+. We became swamped when over 10 large cruise boats came by in succession causing huge waves which continually broke over the boat. |
The boat quickly sank below the surface of the water, yet we were still able to sit in it. The cox was forced to share the bow person's seat.
