It is a stunning 30km row through the canals and lagoon on a day when all engine powered craft are banned from the waters. 1,500 boats take part with crews from around the world in all manner of traditional rowing boats, coastal boats, kayaks and canoes. It's not a race but a gentle paddle and crews can stop and raft up in the lagoon to enjoy a water picnic.
