***** Important Note Regarding Craft Transport to Rottnest on the Barge
We have cut off barge bookings as we have reached what may be full capacity. We are hoping to fit more craft on the barge but will not know this until load time on Friday prior to the race. We have started a wait list so if you wish to add your name to the list please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone us on 0422 554 965. We also suggest trying the ferry companies to see if they have space to take your craft. You will still be able to enter the race online up until midnight Thursday 22nd Nov or on Friday 23rd Nov at Sorrento Beach SLSC from 12pm till 6.30pm. If you have any questions please get in contact with us.

The Doctor Spectator Boat
Watch The Doctor on board Silverado, an 80 Foot long, 27 Foot wide, Power Catamaran, with a 360 degree 2 level viewing platform.
This is a great way for spectators to get amongst the action and watch their paddling friends participate in The Doctor – one of the greatest ocean paddling events in the world.
The boat will depart Rottnest Island and follow the race to the finish on Saturday 24th November 2018.
You will need to arrange your own transport to Rottnest Island by ferry. Our preferred ferry carrier is Rottnest Fast Ferries.
Final details on when and where to meet on Rottnest Island will be emailed to you prior to the event.
