Where’s the best place to watch the Portobello regatta?


We’ve laid out the rowing race course to give spectators on the prom a great view of the races on Saturday 30th July. The races start at around 10:30 and finish around 4:00pm.

We have a massed start from the beach between Bath Street and Bellfield Street and head out towards a bouy on the horizon. The boats turn around the bouy and head towards Joppa.

The boats turn around a second bouy, just in front of the Dalriada bar – this could provide some exciting moments as boats jockey for position.

They then put on a last burst of speed along the length of the beach, just offshore, to the finish line at the bottom of Bath Street.
