Changes in 2022 to the
Instructions for Crews

  • Shorter course: The START has been moved about 100m upstream to ensure that swans nesting behind the island are in no danger of being disturbed by wash as the Umpire launches accelerate off the Start.
  • Even more waterfowl-friendly: We will stop any race where there is risk of collision with a swans, chicks or other waterfowl that cannot get out of the way. Coxes/steers should be aware that this may happen and be prepared to act promptly.
  • The TOILETS have moved to the Kingston Grammar School end of the site on their ‘old astroturf’ and not in the middle of the trailer area. Factor a longer walk into your race preparations.
  • Teas/coffees, cakes and burgers will be on sale at the regatta. Please bring your own choice of ‘performance food’ for between races.
