Wet and wild
Evening fun . . . It was busy on the Clutha River last Friday evening around the Balclutha and Clydevale ramps as boaties and jet ski users took advantage of the warm weather and good clear flows. Chris Bunting (left) and Stephen Dobson fly through the air as they practise their jet ski tricks. “There were a lot of people out on the river from Friday to Sunday,” Mr Bunting said. “It was great to see the river being used.” The recent warm weather spell continued over the weekend when parts of Otago recorded some of their hottest temperatures so far this year as the mercury rose close to 30degC.
