Wet Behind The Ears?

Was just mildly amused by the sequence of events described on the front page of the Ballarat Courier website, in regards to some wild weather interrupting the Australian Masters Rowing Championship on Lake Wendouree.

At 8:35am, racing on the second day of the event had been cancelled – (as circled in red) – yet at 12:12pm, the second report – (circled in green) – suggests there were boats on the water competing and capsizing due to the weather.

Apparently either despite the cancellation earlier in the day, proceedings went ahead, or rowers took to the water anyway.

Either way, their own fault?
