I must have enclosed to much information in last year’s Licence renewal information as 60% were incomplete and valuable time was wasted chasing the information as most of you wouldn’t have renewed a licence before she says with sarcasm lol!! (Thank you very much to those that helped by supplying everything that was needed, much appreciated, and gold stars  will be awarded this season for all completed renewals).

IMPORTANT NOTES:

 Due to the issues that COVID-19 has presented us with, the Licence Category and Grade that you were issued within the 2019 / 2020 or 2020 / 2021 season is what you will be issued with for the 2021 / 2022 season unless you were fortunate enough to gain signatures to have your licence endorsed.


 Cockpit Immersion Testing; as it’s not possible for us to conduct Cockpit Immersion Testing in the current COVID -19 climate, so if you have previously had a Cockpit Immersion Test in the recent past (last couple of years) then you will be granted an exemption for the 2021 / 2022 season.

  BUT any New Licence Holders that haven’t previously had a Cockpit Immersion Test will not be able to race a cell boat until such time we can organise a test for you.

 If you have been issued a Licence and have been racing an Open deck boat and are going to be racing a Cell boat then you must have competed in and have your licence endorsed at one Club Day prior to entering a C1 event, providing you have recently completed a Cockpit Immersion Test.


 To be eligible to be upgraded from a Limited Licence to an Unlimited Licence you must race/drive an Unlimited Boat to gain your required two signatures to upgrade (one signature per event). You won’t be eligible for signatures if you race a Limited boat in an Unlimited race.


Your Medical is only valid for 6 weeks from the date you have it done until you submit your licence paperwork. Ensure your Doctor has put their stamp over their signature, no stamp, no licence!
