Added focus on safety

Wagga residents gear up for World Championship Gumi Race Wagga Gumi

It’s Gumi race time again in Wagga, with hoardes of locals set to race down the Murrumbidgee River on their homemade crafts on Sunday.
While the event is purely for fun, Royal Lifesaving will be on hand this year, to remind locals of some important water safety messages, in light of recent drowning tragedies.
Ash Cater from Royal Lifesaving says the Murrumbidgee River is the nation’s sixth highest river drowning blackspot.

The Gumi Race gets underway from 10am on Sunday at Eunony Bridge, and finishes at Wagga Beach, this year the event is also teaming up with the Cork and Fork festival
