21st November 2014 - Cambridge/Waikato Power Boat Club Entry

Entries are few and far between for the Arapuni Regatta. The Cambridge/Waikato club have gone to a lot of trouble to commit to running a Regatta on behalf of the Boaties. One thing that needs to happen though is for Boats to actually enter and give the club an idea on who is going to be there to race. Arapuni is a great venue for both racing and social activities.
Please Enter or Confirm your Intentions with the claub secretary ASAP
North Island Championships Entries close two weeks prior to the Regatta.

21st November 2014 - Round 1 NZF1 Tour
11 Formula One Tunnels lined up on the dock at Wanganui for Round 1 of the Tour.

With Saturday bring pretty much blown out, teams opted to draw poles out of a hat rather than do hot laps for the early start to be had on Sunday. Also due to safety and course restrictions, the 11 boat field was split into 2 5/6 rows for a idle start. Race 2 was reverse grid of the Race 1 poles (not finishing order) which gave everyone a go in the front/rear grid. Conditions were rough for both races and there were only a couple of minor incidents, Jeff Price losing the rear cowl of the boat and Sam Hughes have a close call in turn 1 of race 2. Nick Coles, a new driver to the Tour completed both races without any issues.

On board with Scott Construction

Great Day at Luptons Lake near Waverley today with a small but enthusiastic team taking art in a good fun weekend that sees the new drivers get a chance to learn how to make clock starts and pick up useful tips. Bayden Sprozen in "Mad Dog Maddi" offered it seemed to show how a driver/boat rescue should be performed. Tomorrow looks like more of the same hopefully not from Bayden though.

Featured Events:
The Bridge to Bridge Water Ski Classic is back for its 31st running and will be held on the weekend of 29th-30th November 2014. This year, Yamaha and Rollo’s Marine will once again be on board as naming rights sponsors, which is fantastic for the support of the event. The racing takes place in many forms over the weekend and is held on the Waikato River and is the premier event of the year for water ski racers in New Zealand.

The event has seven components, the pinnacle of which is the Long Race that is an 82km flat out sprint, against the clock from Cambridge to Taupiri and back to Hamilton. This race attracts the best ski racers from North and South Islands as well as plenty of Australians from across the ditch.

Warlord will be back, hoping to claim its 12th Bridge to Bridge title but will be facing some strong competition from an impressive line up of open class boats, including last year’s winner Messiah. Watch this space.

This year the Bridge to Bridge and Twin Rivers are being run as a “Super Series” and the overall winner of the two events will be crowned King of the Rivers 2014.

10th October 2014 - Junior Age Limit

Junior drivers ages: Statement of Junior Eligibility

As of that past few weeks the Executive have been discussing the age of Junior drivers and the criteria of that age. We made a decision to go with what we interpreted as the current rules in our rulebook and issued that information out to make it public.
It came to our attention that this ruling was not very favorable to a lot of members. We are not always going to please everybody all of the time but we do try. We have made a ruling that we think fits where we need to be heading and will make official remits and rulebook entries about this at our next conference.

The new (and final) clarification of age for this season will be that a child is classed as a Junior driver up until the day before their 16th Birthday.

If a race is held on the day of or the day after the 16th birthday then they are NOT eligible.

A legally licensed Junior can still use that license for the rest of the season with no increase in fees to make it a full license.

There is no Date of Birth on our licenses and there will not be for the foreseeable future so you will need to take proof of age if you are close and get challenged or protested.


I trust that this clears things up for all concerned and lets you all plan your seasons travels.
Executive Member Ben Ryan

5th October 2014 - Southland Power Boat Club Rules Clarification

The upcoming Southland Regatta has caused some discussion amongst various parties over a few matters. Please take this as clarification from the NZBPA executive on these matters.

This event is being staged one week before the official calendar date rolling over between seasons for the NZPBA. It is quite obviously an early event in the upcoming season and our Southern Zone will be hosting the titles as they have been allocated for the 2014/15 Season. We as a Zone are therefore happy to have the upcoming requirements for the J Class and Clubmans etc as the rules to which we will be contesting. Yes Juniors will need to have been to a clubday and had some "official" training as the MSA has deemed necessary for our youngsters to compete. Yes the new engine rules will be used - 30hp or 25hp three cylinder clubmans as was adopted at conference will be the engine rules.

We fully understand the limitations of processing licenses and registrations and do not fully expect the boat registrar to have all intending competitors licenses, registrations and associated paperwork returned before the Southland Regatta. We do expect that you have put the paperwork in place to attain your license and boat registration and paid the required fee. This can be checked by the regatta secretary immediately prior to the event without too much pressure being put on our registrar.

Junior drivers ages: Statement of Junior Eligibility

As of that past few weeks the Executive have been discussing the age of Junior drivers and the criteria of that age. We made a decision to go with what we interpreted as the current rules in our rulebook and issued that information out to make it public.
It came to our attention that this ruling was not very favorable to a lot of members. We are not always going to please everybody all of the time but we do try. We have made a ruling that we think fits where we need to be heading and will make official remits and rulebook entries about this at our next conference.

The new (and final) clarification of age for this season will be that a child is classed as a Junior driver up until the day before their 16th Birthday.

If a race is held on the day of or the day after the 16th birthday then they are NOT eligible.

A legally licensed Junior can still use that license for the rest of the season with no increase in fees to make it a full license.

There is no Date of Birth on our licenses and there will not be for the foreseeable future so you will need to take proof of age if you are close and get challenged or protested.



There is too much negative discussion on all of the above points from too many people whom are not even directly related to the matter. This must stop. We as an executive acknowledge the timing of our calendar roll-over is messy and we will try to cure this after this season. We also know that the junior class is a new thing to our sport and we are learning how best to deal with this as we go - some clearer rules will be in the book next year regarding the points above. Regatta dates, venues and hosts are hard to come by in this day and age! The Southern Zone will only have four regattas this season spread over 6 months and I for one want them all to succeed!


I trust that this clears things up for all concerned and lets you all plan your seasons travels.
