Floatfest has been and gone for another year, bringing with it a positive outcome and new challenges that arise with the event's staging on the Murray River in open water for the first time.

The Floatfest team would like to thank all of those who participated on water and those who came to watch, including those who helped make #Floatfest16 better than previous years. Those of you who still joined us regardless of the weather on Saturday evening are real champions - without you we would not have beaten our previous record of 156 from 2015.

We acknowledge there are still areas we need to work on in the future and will endeavour to make 2017 even greater!
