If you want to see the level of press exposure the sport of surfboats receive from our Navy partnership take a look at the attachment. AND this is just for one month of November.
Just as an aside take note of the exposure for the local sponsor in the various photos.

Please find attached Circular 42: Australian Surf Boat Crew Team Manager Nomination for the 2015 Trans-Tasman Test Series being contested in New Zealand.
The nomination process this year is done via survey monkey, not an application form as such, with links provided on the circular directing nominees to the required nomination forms.
The file has also been posted as normal to the SLS Members Portal with full copy attached. Please ensure broad distribution of this circular to sport stakeholders.
Please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me with any questions you may have.
Crews had a great weekend of racing at Surfers last weekend. The start of the National Short Course was very well received with fast and furious racing. Crowds loved it because they could watch the entire race and understand who was winning. Crews loved it because they had quick turn around times and it was great for lifting the surf skills. No sooner through the break, into a turn and chasing the runs to home. Distance was set at about 200M. This won't replace the chamionship course at major events but it is a great event for the first half of the season to get pleanty of races and importantly your off the beach early but still pretty well worked over.

The ASRL Committee would like to acknowledge and thank the SLSA Board and Staff who have negotiated with us on the introduction of Helmets into our sport. We have been treated with respect and our opinion valued along this long and at times rough road but the final result has been reached so now everybody can get on with enjoying the new season.
The attachments below (PDF reader required) are the final pieces to the puzzle in understanding the new Helmet Policy and will quell any opportunity for this policy to be misinterpreted at any level. Sweeps are urged to understand our important role to the safety of our crews. By all means we urge all crews to go out into and train in surf to lift the skill level but to also be mindful of the requirements of the new policy.

The ASRL are hopefully again leading the way by providing something very real in reducing the cost burden to young rowers. All the benefits like the new racing singlet, Tee Shirt and Cap will still be provided to every U19 rower but all charges are being covered by the Navy sponsorship.

Ever wanted to put your crew's skills to the test on the ultimate stage? Think you have what it takes to be up there with the best the ASRL has to offer across the nation? Love short, exciting sprint racing? The ASCC and NTSE is a new initiative of the ASRL, going on from the Triple Crown of 2013-2014, pitting the skills of all crews across Australia who rise to the occasion to the test. The Series will take place in South Australia, Queensland and New South Wales, and provides an excellent opportunity for crews to travel and test their mettle against crews Australia-wide.
