The 2017 Royal Hobart Regatta will be three days of continuous activity on the Derwent River, Queens Domain and the skies above, including another tilt at the Guinness World Record for simultaneous launch of canoes and kayaks.

The Australian Army Parachute Display Team and Roulettes are also back in 2017, along with great aerobatic displays by Stan Tilly and Tasmanian Warbird Adventures.

Rowing eightsAn 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.

Kids and Family day on Sunday has another great entertainment program, the Make Believe Pirates leading the way, some great performances from the Musical Theatre Crew and a full program of song, dance and kids' entertainment.

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.

The keelboats will be competing for the Sir Thomas Lipton Cup, donated by the famous Americas Cup challenger, Sir Thomas Lipton in 1915, and won over the years by many of Tasmania's most famous yachts.

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, helicopter 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 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.
