However there is one problem with what look like pretty beach scenes. Many of the beaches are not supervised by lifesaving clubs and yet people go swimming there. In some places when I went into the water- just in the shallows, the undertow is very strong. Swimmers can easily get swept past their usual safe depth. In the past week three people have drowned in Victorian beaches - at unpatrolled beaches - at Rye, near Lorne, and down near Sale.
