Melbourne Whittley Cruiser Club Commodore Stuart Malone said, "The Clubs organising committee, have been hard at work, organising the event. After feed back from the recent Qld Regatta this year, many members from the NSW and QLD Whittley Clubs, have never experienced the River Murray, and therefore the decision was made, to choose Renmark on the River Murray as the ideal location for the Regatta. The Club has decided on a fitting "Pioneer" theme for the Regatta.  This will be an enjoyable week end for those Whittley Club Members and Whittley boat owners who can attend, we look forward to seeing you all in 2014. However, numbers are limited, so  Whittley owners need to express interest in the event, as soon as possible. The 2014 Regatta will be different to any other in the past, in the fresh water of Australia's longest river system."

The Renmark area of the River Murray and surround provides the perfect environment and water ways for the event to be held. The trip will take boat owners, down through the rivers lock system, past sandy spits and through majestic cliffs up the banks of the river, as well as passing historic townships and landmarks.  This journey and expedition will draw on the rivers long history and importance to the local area and, the many townships which rely on it even today.
