FLAME ON! Members of a Melbourne Flames team put their backs into a spirited effort on the Wimmera River during Horsham Dragon Boat Regatta at the weekend. The regatta, the second of its type in the Wimmera, attracted more than 250 paddlers from 10 teams across Victoria and interstate. Intense competition involved determined paddlers climbing into highly colourful dragon boats and taking on a Barnes Boulevard river course and opposition crews. The regatta represents one of many ways Wimmera communities are exploring opportunities for or making the most of their lakes and rivers. Organisations have loaded a regional spring-summer activities calendar with a variety of events ranging from fishing contests to regattas and festivals. Historic Dimboola Regatta, following hot on the heels of a barefoot skiing and jumps championship, is the next event on the list. Pictures: PAUL CARRACHER
