As Greg said, a great turn out of CAWPBA members and wooden boats in general. There was also everything inbetween and up to Blown Alcohol boats.
Once again a big thank you to everyone who travelled from near & far to make the event what it was. The weather wasn't as good as Saturday but plently of people still came to see on Sunday.
These are just a few photos to show the crowd present and a few boats, I'm sure others have better photos.

Well Carol and I are back from Goolwa. What can I say... what a brilliant weekend!! Great people, great boats and some very spirited demonstrations, so much so that there was a fairly high attrition rate! Most serious being the JET which suffered substantial damage and was very nearly lost after appearing to hit something submerged....I hope all ends well with the repairs, Frank ! On a brighter note Pagan ran well all weekend apart from going off song occasionally, I even managed to get it turn left by the event. All I can say is hat's off to all involved in putting on such a fantastic event, and i'm already looking forward to doing it all again next year.

Looks like it was a great weekend, as usual. Was that skiffo, err skiff, a South Australian based boat? Looks absolutely fabulous.

Paul,
"What a great looking Skiff !
Doc. Should change your title from "SKIFFO" to "SMICKO".

Many thanks to everyone who attended, especially the guys willing to tow from interstate.
Hope to see you all and more for next years Aquafest.

Here is my gopro helmet cam from the Linda-K running with Rayza in Pagan

Excellent Jeff.

After watching the tacho, they certainly aren't that much use in a race.

Looking forward to the next vid.
