When it became apparent that it wasn't possible to run the Boat Festival, Paul Stephanus and his merry people decided that this was the perfect opportunity to do something that they had been contemplating anyway:  run a series of smaller, coordinated events in towns with a maritime history.  Franklin has been chosen as one of those towns, and the LBT has been asked to provide some 'on the water' activities.  What we are contemplating is taking the public out rowing in Grebes and Skiffs, much as we have at previous Australia Days and the Bellerive Seafest, as well as joy rides in Nancy, and sailing in one of the whaleboats.  If you would like to participate, either on a boat or on land, please complete the form below (  We need to sort this out a bit earlier than would normally be the case to assist with planning.
