All dressed up and nowhere to row, 2007

Ian KENINS, born 1961.

 

In 1956, Lake Wendouree in Ballarat was nearly rejected as a site for yachting and rowing events for the Melbourne Olympics because it lacked sufficient depth over the whole course. Forty-eight years later, the Lake Wendouree Rowing Club’s coxed four long for any water to row on as they stand two metres below the usual water line.

 

Ballarat, Victoria.
