By now you may have heard about the exciting new event the NSWWA will be introducing for 2019, the East Coast Titles. Set to take place in the same week as the Merimbula Classic, the events will make for the biggest week in Australian wavesailing.
This all new event will take place between the 16th and 19th of November and will be based at Gerroa, but with a number of locations along the east coast ready to act as potential venues based on conditions. It will run alongside and complement the NSWWA’s Summer Wavesailing Series, with 2019-20 season membership holders entitled to a 50% discount on entry to the titles (emails will be sent to members).
The event will have all of the usual divisions, and is expected to attract sailors of all levels from competition newcomers through to seasoned pros and will have a structured heat format. As with our other events, we will be using the hugely popular SurfComp app for judging which allows anyone to follow heat scores live.
In addition to the competition itself, there will be some great social events in the evenings. With Merimbula to be held in the same week, this will make for the perfect wavesailing week and a great week-long trip for interstate sailors.
Saturday 16th – Tuesday 19th: East Coast Titles (based at Gerroa)
Wednesday 20th: Rest/travel day
Thursday 21st – Sunday 24th: Merimbula Classic
