Parking is always tight. There is one lot dedicated to competitors and two for spectators, volunteer, and officials. There is also a satellite parking lot with a shuttle service that runs all day long. The two lots located at the course are pay to play and the satellite lot is free. There is also controlled traffic flow with plenty of signage; please be sure to mind all security personnel and volunteers as they are there for your safety.

Please refer to this map of Mission Bay for the traffic pattern on the water and be sure to follow the direction of all the safety officials on the water; its everyone's job to insure that the regatta is safe.
Also please note that large tour buses are no longer allowed to park in the competitor’s lot; the bus entrance is from the southernmost entrance at Crown Point Drive on to Northbound Corona Oriente only. The exit is at Moorland, after unloading at Moorland and Corona Oriente. The bus route must be adhered to strictly to ensure the safety of all involved.
