A speed-limit uplifting is also in force for certain vessels directly involved in the regatta.

Vessels wishing to transit through or use the reserved area during the event may do so only after consulting with the event organisers, and then may only do so if and when, and under such conditions, that the event organisers may choose to specify. Delays can be expected, but access will not be unreasonably denied.

Event communications are on Channel 17 on Marine VHF radio.

If in doubt, call ‘Race Control’ or consult an event marshal (who will be wearing a high-visibility vest). Vessels entering or within the reserved area are required to comply with any direction given by the event organisers or event officials as if it were a direction given by the Harbourmaster.
