The Royal Hobart Regatta (RHR) Ambassador program
The program is a platform for personal development, public profile, growth and confidence - and also offers networking opportunities through involvement in Tasmania’s longest standing community event.
For the entrants in the Regatta Ambassador Quest, Saturday is judging day, which includes individual interviews with the judging panel.
Monday is more relaxed. They join representatives of the Regatta Committee aboard the “Serenade” at Kings Pier for a cruise on the Derwent River, before going ashore at the Regatta jetty for announcement of the winners and presentations.
The Ambassador Program has many benefits. Ambassadors:
- become the face of Australia’s longest running aquatic event and a key influence for prospective entrants and attendees to the Regatta.
- are be involved in a wide variety of activities throughout the year and across a variety of audiences including students, community and sporting groups and members of the general public.
- become valued members of the Regatta team and thrive in the Regatta's many achievements.
- receive valuable work experience that will help them to develop a range of transferable skills and enhance their CV.
The RHR Regatta announces a Junior and Senior Ambassador.
