The annual Murray Meander launches again this month with tinnies taking to the water from Echuca to Mildura to raise money for cancer charities.
A fleet of 26 boats is set to leave Echuca on Saturday, February 23, for the week-long 830
Event co-ordinator Dick Phillips said the Echuca-based event started in 2006 and had so far raised $750
‘‘A lot of people have a journey down the Murray on their bucket list — this is a way of doing it with the logistics taken care of, and for a good cause,’’ Mr Phillips said.
The meander is spread over three years — with boats each year taking on a different section of the Murray — from Corryong to Echuca, Echuca to Mildura and Mildura to Goolwa in South Australia.
Shepparton-based Linda and Andrew Prentice did their first meander last year when they travelled 735
They are up for the second leg to Mildura under the team name of ‘‘Aquaholics’’, despite wet weather and a holed boat last year.
‘‘It was a really uplifting event — everybody was helping out. It was about raising money and it was just really good fun,’’ Mrs Prentice said.
Mr Phillips said the Prentices raised $12
