Press accreditations are available at the accreditation office in the knight's hall (sala rycerska) at the Voivodship Office, at ul. Wały Chrobrego 4, 3rd-7th August from 10.00 to 18.00. Accreditations should be collected personally. Editorial teams who delegate one representative to collect all their ID cards are an exception to the rule. Anyone who did not attach a photo to the form needs to collect their ID cards personally, after having their photo taken in the accreditation office.

NOTE: Due to safety concerns, please include your PESEL number while filling in the form or collecting your ID card

Accreditations allow you to use the regatta press office during the event, participate in press conferences, use the boats for the media and access the media zone located on the terrace overlooking the fountain in Wały Chrobrego. Accreditations do not allow you to drive freely around the premises, to enjoy the attractions offered by the rally nor to board vessels out-of-turn. Separate accreditations will be issued by the event organizer that allow its holders to access the area near the stage during concerts held on the main stage.


Vehicle entry permits will be issued only to crews with heavy equipment that cannot be carried into the event area. Permits will also be given to OB vans after having made an appropriate request.

NOTE: All vehicles moving around the event area will be subject to control by the services. Please remember this when planning your work schedule.
