a tall ship in the lakes

One of the highlights of my coming week will be the Paynesville Classic Boat Rally, and the biggest entrant is Lady Nelson, a replica of the first boat to chart Bass Strait. She has come from Hobart, her home port. A history of the original boat (in brief) and other interesting background can be found by following this link
