DRONE Message for HoR & Regattas

Rowing SA advises that no Drones are to be used at tomorrow’s Head of the River Regatta, or any future Regattas.

This is for both legislation compliance and safety reasons, noting that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) rules prohibit unlicensed Drone usage at events where Drones would be flying over athletes/spectators/officials.

Any Licensed operator must speak with Rowing SA regarding proposed plans to use a Drone at Regattas, and all factors will need to be fully considered before any decision is made.

Thanks you for your co-operation with this and as always, the safety of all involved in our Regattas remains our focus and priority.


Warm Regards,

Rowing SA
