Boat capsized at Werribee South

Post by SteveoTheTiger » Sun Feb 21, 2021 3:16 pm

I read in the news this morning that a boat capsized and woman died yesterday afternoon just off the Werribee South beach. Apparently they were in a small tinny.

I was down there yesterday afternoon getting a coffee from the take away shop (or trying too, but their machine wasnt working). And i remember saying to the missus that it was very rough, not a great day to head out. There was a few people kite surfing, which is an indication of the conditions.

I heard this news. Always sad to hear such stories.

The wind change in the afternoon made the bay really rough.
