Racing commences from 1130am for the Ocean Passage Race and 1200pm for most of the other classes/divisions.

Spectators will enjoy a colourful feast of sails from various vantage points on the Harbour foreshores and viewing craft on the water. Best vantage points to witness the action include Bradleys Head, Middle Head, North and South Heads, Balgowlah Heights, Vaucluse and Watsons Bay.
