Back to the water and an even more productive visit than our previous trip three weeks ago.

Last time out it was snowing just before the task and sunny during, this week we dealt with the threat of rain which thankfully held off until about five minutes after we downed tools.

With Huw's arrival time in the balance due to work, big thanks to Mel and Dave who stored and brought along the paint and tools for this week's task.

57m completed on day 1 of this year's series of tasks, on visit two we improved our output to 68m leaving us around 180m to finish the current section of sleepers running north of Abbey Park towards Belgrave Lock.

Following the task Ashley, Nick and Huw enjoyed a few social laps of the Abbey Park Oval.

Well done gang.
