Thanks to Boating Downunder for creating this wonderful video.

This was such a great event on the Gippsland Lakes. You have to get there for the next one in 2020. It is much more than a boat show, it is a festival and a celebration of classic boats! We are also loving the music by Boatkeeper, a great new Australian band!
