Pre-registration Checklist - click plus ⊕ for more detail


You will need to have your human-powered vessel/craft on the water at the Goolwa Aquatic Club prior to the official start of the event. Give yourself plenty of time to get into position. There are two small beaches near the Club where you can temporarily tie up your vessel once it is on the water. We expect some delays prior to the start due to the anticipated number of participants. So, if you require vehicle access to the boat ramps (2), please ensure you have sufficient time to launch and later retrieve your vessel.

Safety Equipment

You and your vessel/craft must comply with all of SA recreational boating requirements. In particular, correct specification and fitting life jackets are compulsory for all participants as required by laws of South Australia and must be worn unless an exemption applies to your craft. We recommend obtaining a copy of the SA Recreational Boating Handbook for reference. There is a download link available on the Homepage.

Rules of the Road

You will be participating in open public waters. Therefore, you must be familiar with the normal rules of boating including keeping to right of any channel or passage. Failure to comply with these rules is not only dangerous to yourself and other water users, but can lead to significant fines.  We expect both Water Police and SA Marine Safety representation at the event.
