For this season all NSW/ACT riders must be a NSWPWC Member, the membership is $30.00 and will cover you from 1st July 2011 to 30th June 2012, in the $30.00 membership we are including membership to the St George Sailing Club, so all you need to do is complete the 2011-2012 NSWPWC Membership Form & St George Sailing Club Form and post both along with the $30.00 fee to our address, PO Box 8 St Marys NSW 1790, and we will lodge your membership to the Sailing Club on your behalf, Sailing Club membership is from 1st Sept each year for 12 months. Please note if you are a NSW/ACT resident this is compulsory, all interstate riders will pay a higher entry fee per event.

Proposed Classes 2011-2012 Season
As mentioned we are including a ski class at the Enduro Events, our first test of this event will be in September, the proposed format will be to have Runabouts & Ski’s race together, for the turns our initial thoughts are to have separate turning buoys for Runabouts & Ski’s to avoid any confusion on the corners and on straights all Runabout Riders will have to give way to Ski’s, any thoughts/comments Ski Riders have please let me know, happy to listen to all.

Circuit Events – Pro/Am Runabout Open, Pro/Am Runabout Stock, Pro/Am Open/GP Ski, Pro/Am Ski Lites, Pro/Am Naturally Aspirated Runabout, Pro/Am OEM Stock Runabout, Pro/Am Runabout Women’s Limited, Pro/Am Runabout 800 Open, Pro/Am Sport 800 Mod, Am Women’s Ski Limited, happy to include other classes if sufficient entrants, all classes require 6 riders and may be amalgamated within another class at Race Directors discretion.

Enduro Events – Pro/Am Runabout Open, Pro/Am Runabout Stock, Pro/Am Open/GP/Lites Ski, Pro/Am Runabout Naturally Aspirated, Pro/Am OEM Stock Runabout, all classes require 6 riders and may be amalgamated within another class at Race Directors discretion.

This Season there will be an overall point score, every event will count to become the NSWPWC Club Champion, and once we have completed the season we aim to hold a presentation dinner.

Entry Forms & Event Information Details/Membership Forms
Prior to each event the entry form will be available to download from our club website, you will also need to review the Event Information Details this will change for each venue, with the entry forms they will need to be lodged by the Wednesday prior to each event, payment will also be required and we will not accept payment on the day unless you are submitting entry late with late fee. All riders must hold a current PWC licence and must be presented on day of event, any rider that holds a AJSBA membership must also produce their AJSBA licence, NSWPWC will not allow any rider to race if either of these licences can not be produced and a 50% fee will be deducted from your race entry (excluding AJSBA fees).

Race Numbers
The NSWPWC Committee will be making a strong stand on race numbers if your race number does not meet the IJSBA standards you will be required to purchase race numbers from NSWPWC club on day of event, no exceptions.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact a committee member. Look forward to seeing you at a NSWPWC Event.
