Australians dominate the entry list, with 42 boats registered. Each 14-foot Tasar dinghy is crewed by two people, many of which are parent-sibling or husband-wife teams.
Among the Australians at the regatta is Frank Bethwaite, who designed and launched the first Tasar in 1975.
Fellow Australians and reigning world champions Rob Douglass and his daughter Nicole will be competing on their boat Chukkel.
