There were two unrelated incidents on the Otago Branch JBNZ Godley River run on Friday.
 
There was a collision between 2 boats after one ran aground near the top of the river.
 
Then we had a boat sink trying tow another boat off a sand bar. The boat that sank was helicoptered out.
 
The same 2 boats were involved in each incident.
 
Please respect both boaters who were shaken up by the turn of events.
 
The Otago Branch are current waiting on the incident reports to be provided so we can complete a report for the National magazine and the web board. There is a lot to learn from both the action and the responses of the boaters and the JBNZ members who were at the event and we intend to include a summary and learning from this in the next magazine.
 
Thanks
Regards
