The 2015 Royal Hobart Regatta will be three days of continuous activity on the Derwent River, Queens Domain and the skies above. The Roulettes are back with their fantastic aerial displays for the three days.
An action-packed program is in store for you, with a stage on the foreshore for all three days - featuring a large screen projecting live feeds from the water action. There is a high energy Amplified + concert on Saturday afternoon from 5:30, followed by short movie.
Kids and Family day on Sunday has another great entertainment program with Ronald McDonald and friends leading the way, the Make Believe Pirates, some great performances from the Musical Theatre Crew and a full program of song, dance and kids' entertainment.
A popular kids movie will be on the big screen from 4:30pm - title to be announced in the next couple of days.
All of our main water events - sailing, rowing, Trans Derwent Swimmers and jet skis will put on a great show, with some exciting milestone feature events - including the Denis Mounie Trophy for the feature rowing eights race, celebrating 100 years. WinTech Racing will present e a set of supurb sweep oars to the winning crew.
Another significant anniversary is in the lightwewight sculls- they will compete for a gold pocket watch, as their predecessors did 100 years ago. Wooden eights racing will retiurn on Saturday with keen competition for the $1,000 purse.
It's also the Centenary for the Sir Thomas Lipton Cup, donated by the famous Americas Cup challenger, Sir Thomas Lipton in 1915 - and competed for by the keelboats.
And of course our regatta ground rides bring some new excitement as well as the old favourites.
The Royal Australian Navy, Airforce and Army give great support to the Regatta with flagship HMAS Sydney, helicopter wet-winching demonstrations and Army and Navy Bands entertaining us.
Stan Tilley will give us another great aerial acrobatic display and the woodchoppers will be working hard chopping and sawing under the hot sun.
Our thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsors and participants who have come on board to make the Royal Hobart Regatta a success.
Peoples Day on Monday will bring a large keelboat fleet out again on a course that will keep the combined clubs fleet within sight of the Regatta Ground, bringing the biggest display of sails at the Royal Hobart Regatta for many years.
And right in the middle of the river in front of the Regatta Ground the smaller yachts will put on a great showcase of sails - and gave Regatta patrons a great spectacle of sail.
At 6pm in the evening on Monday, the Geilston bay Boat Club will run a twilight keelboat race starting directly in front of the Regatta Ground - which will be spectacular for Regatta Patrons - keelboat racing close up.
