The Course

All boats will enter the water at the boat park at Mighty River Domain and proceed upstream and above the start line. There will be marshalls stationed at various intervals as you proceed upriver. All boats must be above the start and in start order, facing upstream before the first boat is started. Boats will marshall with number 1 boat closest to the start and the last number as the most upstream boat. Under marshalls instructions, boats will spin and paddle when told to do so. There will be approximately 15 second gaps between boats. Boats will race from Moana Road Reserve (by Becks Nurseries) downstream past Keely's Reserve and the pylons onto Lake Karapiro, with the finish line at the usual finish end of the 2km summer race course.
