The Easter regatta, which has been held annually for more than 90 years, is jointly ­organised by the Mildura and Wentworth and District rowing clubs.

The clubs now take turns hosting the two-day regatta in alternate years, having hosted one day each until 2015.

This weekend’s event will be based at the Mildura Rowing Club lawns, despite the club building being inaccessible due to ­ongoing renovations, with marquees to be set up instead.
