    No titles. Walking race through a lake.

    Morbisch, Austria.

    Various shots of a group of young people in funny costumes (or could just be hippies in their usual clothes) jumping in Lake Nedsiedlersee and walking through the water. They are gatecrashing a 'serious' event - The Great Walk Through The Lake.

    Several shots of men in swimming trunks getting into the water and wading across the two mile lake. They look pretty serious about it. Some use their arms to propel themselves along.

    A group of people wait at the other side of the lake to greet the winners. Three men wave to the camera - seems they were the first to make it, with a time of one hour six minutes.
