The official starting line is at the Essroc Silos just west of the Ambassador Bridge. Chewitt Park off of Sandwich Street offers a good vantage point to see the exciting early minutes of the race; just east of the Bridge in Assumption Park viewers will find the tugs reasonably bunched; from the Bridge there are good vantage points at the water to often see the tugs pass close at hand; and at Dieppe Park in Downtown Windsor viewers will enjoy the excitement of the often close finishes by the judge's boat berthed at the Park. *Use caution viewing the race, the tug's wake can reach as high as the park!

The tugs complete a parade/cool down lap passing close to downtown Detroit from the GM Building (Ren Cen) to Hart Plaza before returning across the river to Windsor where the tugs dock at Dieppe Park and the crew members participate in the awards ceremony.

A family friendly event, this yearís race coincides with the Carnival held on Windsorís waterfront near the finish line.

Viewing Tip:
Spectators can watch the race from anywhere along its route. Among the top viewing spots is the finish line at Windsor's Dieppe Park. Tugs dock in Windsor for the awards ceremony.
