The event isn't only about finishing first across the finish line however; there's also a best-dressed award. This means ferries don streamers, flags and more, creating an even more impressive spectacle.
The ferrython is a celebration of Sydney's love for its harbour and commuter ferries, which have been operating since 1861. Back then, fewer than 1,000 people lived on the North Shore, but that number is now 200 000.
The event is also one of many that make up the Sydney Festival.
