Good to see our towns busy again this weekend, with lots of visitors coming to enjoy our special corner of the world. The Marlay Point Overnight yacht race was held this weekend, and from all accounts, was a huge success. Great to see so many boats in Paynesville today. Counted 15 boats at one point, all enjoying the fabulous conditions out there today, and the hospitality of the local folk.
Also lovely to see @Peter Medling and @Sallyanne Barclay return to the Gippsland Lakes aboard their beautiful Music Maker. Bit of a rough night for them, but a safe bar crossing yesterday at Lakes Entrance, despite the white water at the Entrance.

Expertly handled bar crossing – and a safe return to the Lakes by Skipper Peter Medling!
We thank everyone who has come to visit Lakes Entrance and surrounding areas this long weekend, you have helped keep local businesses open and supported local people affected not only by the virus, but also by the bushfires. Thank you! Safe travels home to you all.
