The Wooden Boat Festival begins with a “sail past”, a parade of dozens of the boats of the 400 taking part.
My sister Julie and I drove down to the riverbank to watch the barques, ketches, yawls, etc.
It was a fine day for it, and an armada of spectactor craft, helicopters and light aircraft went up and down the river as they sailed up the Derwent.
Julie got some great photographs, like the one above of the historic “James Craig” returning to Hobart after 25 years.
