The floods are a thing of the past (almost). Boats are now travelling the coast again. Good to see. Lets hope the weather stays good for the Easter break. Stay safe on the water. (PS; These 2 boats are 65ft and 85ft)
These two pictures were taken today at high tide of 1.63 metres. The walkway is never this high on that tide. It looks like there is about 500ML of flood water on top of the tide. All is OK. The sun is now out and the flood waters upstream have dropped dramatically. The flood water at Yamba should start to drop over the next few days.
This picture was taken at low tide today so you can see there is a lot of flood water on top of the tide. The water is very brown because huge amounts of top soil are being washed down the Clarence River. Yamba Marina is again coping well with flood waters because we are located in a safe, protected boat harbour. Flood waters in the Clarence are predicted to peak in the next 24 hours. There is going to be a lot of debris washed out to sea along the NSW Coast this week so be careful if you are planning a trip. RPAYC did the right thing in cancelling the Pittwater to Coffs yacht race. Safety must always come first.
We have had a lot of rain on the far north coast but not nearly as much as the mid north coast. Because the Clarence River is the biggest river on the Australian East Coast, she copes well with lots of rain. It’s wet underfoot. We are keeping an eye on all the boats in the marina and at times likes these were are thankful we are located in a safe boat harbour. Stay safe everyone.
