The NSW individual state spearfishing titles will be held over the weekend of the 28th and 29th of October on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW. The competition is generally rotated through the zones every 4 years with the other zones Sydney, Northern, and Southern each holding the competition when it’s their turn. This year the Central Coast Sealions are hosting this prestigious event with aim of making it a fun and exciting event promoting safe diving and camaraderie between divers.
The State Titles are historically a rock hop In order to make the competition as fair as possible for all participants. The Locations selected for this year’s event are Catherin Hill Bay, Norah Head, Pelican Point and Bateau Bay. The aim of the competition is to swim out from a central location and catch one of each species of fish from a restricted species list of quality table fish.
Once the competition is over competitors must be back in the designated weigh-in area by the finish time where their fish will be weighed and scored. A huge selection of trophies is up for grabs covering every grade and also largest fish, most meritorious and committees choice.
A huge thank you to Adreno for sponsoring the event and donating many of the prizes that will be given away to placeholders and as lucky door prizes.
The NSW State Titles is open to all divers with any level of experience and we encourage all USFA members to attend this great event. If you require more information please check out the Facebook event.
