Yes, open to anybody to come and shoot the action. On the last day or two you have to get there early, or else navigate big crowds. It gets packed in there as people try to move into good viewing or shooting locations. Many standing in the water.
Earlier in the week it's much easier while most people are at work. You can still find some great action to shoot if you check the schedule. Some early morning heats and some afternoon heats. Really a lot of fun.
