Beach N' Bay report - this weekend
- Episode 147 -
What a truly amazing week it's been in terms of weather, it's late April and most boaties are wearing shorts and t-shirts, gotta love that.
Perhaps I'm now sending the wrong message to the weather gods and the winter cold is likely to come quicker, but we hope not.
The calamari are biting off the coast of Wyndham Harbour where residents Rob and Aimee Horton caught plenty right outside the marina, in their boat. They are both living the dream, I say, good on them both!
We've talked for a while now, about the delightful autumn boating weather that Melbourne procures and we've all had a good solid taste of it so far. We are hoping for a few more weeks of it to come, before Melbourne's winter kicks in. Remember folks: "Life Is Better With A Boat".
This weekend's Beach N' Bay Report is proudly presented by our very own: Darren Finkelstein 'The Boat Guy' for the waters of Port Phillip for 30 April - 1 May 2016.
Enjoy our weekly boating forecast, see you on the water; after-all:
Life Is Better With A Boat.
