When to arrive

Arrive early each day to enjoy a full range of events.

Arriving approximately one hour before race time will give spectators time to walk to the start and experience the excitement of the crews battling to be first to “the end of the island” to try and gain dominance for the rest of the race. Or watch the racing from the river in the Umpire’s launch and see the picturesque countryside from a different angle. Select a good spot on the bank as your base, and enjoy some of the great food and shopping experiences available.
