See site plan here showing  the reserved parking areas for Fremantle Pen holders and the Special Areas set aside for Competitors  and Race Officials.

The Harbourmaster has allocated 42 car bays for competing yachts with 1 car bay per entrant, all general crew and others whether RPYC members or not are expected to  park  in public car park areas outside the Annexe to  the south and north.

There will be one car park  pass issued  to each  yacht nominating and 10 official passes.  Any vehicle not  displaying the necessary passes  will  deem to be  contravening this  process, in fairness to the Fremantle pen holders the Harbourmaster has asked that these arrangements  are upheld.
