We've had a couple of contacts from Australia this weekend.
First in was a Skype with John Hassen in Perth. Things are going very well with the 50th Anniversary regatta in January at South Perth.

And 60 is a great turnout, don't you think?? Apparently they have had as many as 115 for the Nationals a few years back. Staggeringly good.... Anyway - once Steve and Phil have whooped them, they'll probably want to go on about the cricket again - they'll have to go back a fair while though - ha ha ha !!
