The major dragon boat regatta commences later in the week and their brand new start platform is in place off the National Library.
I understand that the platform will be removed after the regatta is over.
The starting platform is 80 metres wide so that all crews travelling through Central Basin will see it.
I dont think it has lights on it, and it provides a major hazard for crews training in darkness, and for coxless crews that train without looking around much.
So have a look and admire the starting platform.
We will have it available for major rowing regattas on Yarramundi Reach
