The annual Beer Can Regatta was held in Darwin over the weekend, with boats held above the waterline by nothing but empty tins of brew floating off a beach in the Top End, as cool as you like.

It’s the most Australian of all festivals, this. According to a report by the ABC there’s everything from sausage sizzles to thong-throwing.

The most impressive boat by far at the event this year was a beer can barge floated offshore that, in the shot we see, has about 10 people standing around having a drink. Best. Boat. Ever.
