  • A commercial partnership including sponsor stickers for all boats competing in Branch/Regional Boat Series
  • Wild card entries based on NSW State Championships results

How to gain entry into the BoB

  • Each Regional Boat Series will be invited to select crews from each division and those crews will be automatic entries into the BoB finals. The selection policy and timing of cut off in each Region will be the sole decision of the individual Boat Series organisers.
  • Please only accept if you are 100% committed to attend as the Round Robin will only work fairly with full heats.
  • It will be the responsibility of the Clubs to understand the below quota to know if they are a possible candidate.
  • It will be the responsibility of the series organisers to inform SLSNSW on their selections by the cutoff date.
