Four Bridge paddle for Dragon Boats

BoatsYesterday Mr Iced Vovo and I eagerly awaited the sighting of the 2014 Four Bridges Marathon Paddle on the River Derwent, starting at New Norfolk and finishing at Lindisfarne near the Tasman Bridge, a distance of 41kms – and luckily for us, going straight past our backyard!

The boats were scheduled to set off from near New Norfolk at 8am where they paddle upstream to the New Norfolk Bridge, then downstream to the Bridgewater Bridge, taking morning tea at Austins Ferry and continuing the journey under the Bowen Bridge to the Tasman Bridge and finishing the paddle at the Motor Yacht Club of Tasmania (MYCT).

We sighted the boats at about 12:20ish and they were keeping quite a steady pace going alongside the Claremont Golf Club and eventually disappearing around the bend heading for the Bowen Bridge. It was a lovely sight on a gorgeous morning in Hobart.
