Dam to Dam boat race back after a year off because of COVID
Amid the cheers and groans, the annual Kununurra Water Ski Club’s Dam to Dam boat race event has entertained the crowds along the banks of the Ord River in WA’s North.
- This year, a record-breaking 49 boats entered to race 55 kilometres of the Ord River
- The Booze Brothers won the Endurance race, dressed in suits and ties
- Many boaters were dressed up in wacky costumes to celebrate the event
The water race has been putting tinnies to the test since 1981 but it was cancelled last year due to COVID-19 fears.
This year, a record-breaking number of boats entered to race 55 kilometres of the Ord River head to head.
The club’s secretary, Katie-Mary Hunter, was one of the organisers who revelled in the buzzing atmosphere.
