Time of Event 

    Sun 24th Feb

All training crews please use extreme caution and follow instructions from Safety personnel, while competing paddlers are in the water

There will be a very high number of paddlers in the last 500m of the regatta course and around the Island, most of them boating from the Finish Pontoon and surrounding beaches

Please take extreme caution when rowing in these areas and keep  a lookout for all traffic – ROW SLOWING THROUGH THE LAST 500m


I suggest train  in a loop from 0m to 1000m  if you wish to use the course during this Event.

If returning from training loop use Lane 9  and return to Northern beach only

FINISH PONTOON CLOSED to rowers from 8:15 till 12:00noon

1500m – 2000m  Lanes 1 to 8,  closed to rowing training ( but can use Lane 0 only to access the top 1000m of the course, and return via Lane 9 only)

When using Lane 0 and Lane 9, row slowly and keep a close lookout for other lake users, there will be a higher number of craft in the last 500m
