Witness world-class river racing action on the Waikato River with the international inter-varsity rowing challenge – the Gallagher Great Race.
In perhaps the most star-studded line-up yet, 2015 brings top-class crews Harvard (USA), Cambridge (UK), Syndey (AUS) and Melbourne (AUS) to battle it out against the mighty Waikato.
Always a spectacle, crews navigate and handle the extremely strong, unpredictable currents of the Waikato River, drawing thousands of locals to the river bank to experience the upriver endurance race first-hand.
With corporate racing, the Head of the Waikato Secondary School competition, Battle of the Bombays and live entertainment, the three-day Gallagher Great Race regatta is an awesome spectacle and best of all, completely free to all who attend.
Rally your friends and family, head down to the river bank and support your crew.
