Dear NSW Licence Holders,

 Apologies for the delay in sending out the 2020 / 2021 Licencing Information but we have had much to consider.

Please read through the notes carefully and if you have any further questions please email, text or ring (but only during business hours please).

Some are asking why do we have to pay for a 2020 / 2021 Licence because we didn’t get much if any value from our 2019 / 2020 licences (but you could have raced and used your Licence as there were sufficient race meetings between September and March and lots of licence holders did get value) but the simple facts are NSW has purchased from APBA National, 40 on water days and each of those days whether it be a Club day or a Spectacular costs $2000 per day for Insurance. $80,000 is owed to National APBA and the first payment of $20,000 is due at the end of September and as Club Days are so important for our sport, NSW APBA subsidises them by charging the Clubs $750 for a C3 Club Day sanction and there are approximately 30 Club days out of the 40 on water days and then there are 10 days for Spectaculars or C1 meetings which NSW APBA charges $3000 for a Spectacular C1 meeting, whether it is one or two days but APBA National invoices us $2000 per on water day. So where does the balance of money come from to pay National APBA? from licence fees and unfortunately as much as we’d like to heavily discount the  2020 / 2021 licences we simply can’t afford to and the fees on the last page are the compromise we have agreed on to keep racing in 2020 / 2021.

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 season is what you will be issued with for the 2020 / 2021 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 2020 / 2021 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!


YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE PROCESSED AND IT WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU IF:

• YOU HAVEN'T USED THE FORMS THAT INCLUDE THE INDEMNITY –The forms require the applicant to initial each page and sign the last page. This indemnity will cover the applicant for the entire season and will do away with indemnities being signed at each race meeting.

• MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS ARE REQUIRED EVERY YEAR – As with your APBA Licence, your medical expires on 31 August each year, regardless of when you had it done. 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!

• EMAIL ADDRESS – if you have an email address, please complete the section of your Licence and/or Boat Owner forms – so we can send information to you faster.

• A photocopy of your NSW Maritime or other State Boating Authority Boat Licence and/or Boat Registration is not attached.

• Forms (Medical/Licence/Boat Owner) are NOT COMPLETE or NOT SIGNED by YOURSELF.

• You don’t provide proof that you are a current financial member of your Club. It is YOUR responsibility to prove you have current Club Membership – not ours!

• There is NO Payment attached.

• You haven’t initialed each page of the indemnities for both Driver and Owner
