The regatta features our traditional downstream course on Saturday and our throwback upstream course on Sunday. Both courses are 5000m and offer beautiful scenery and a challenging steering course that includes sweeping turns and bridges. Maps of the courses are posted below.
Events are offered on both days to allow coaches and athletes a wide variety of options to enter multiple events and multiple boatings.

ORRA looks to provide ample opportunities to race in events both Saturday and Sunday. However, due to Sunday being a shorter race day not all events will be offered. The order of races are hard to change so please use your line-up and entry skills and experience to plan accordingly.
