The Blue Water Classic Freediving Competition is held in Woolgoolga on the northern coast of New South Wales and is an exciting event with some of Australia’s best divers striving to win the coveted title.
The blue water classic is known as being predominantly pelagic with an emphasis on sustainable spearfishing. The general consensus is that “less is more” with divers being limited to one of each specie per day, per diver.
The water temperatures are generally around 22 to 25 degrees requiring a 3mm suit, the weather conditions have a large impact on the visibility and temperature on the water however the blue water classic is held in autumn which is known for providing good weather.
With mostly pelagic species as the target, where so much can depend on not only skill, but luck, this competition is really anyone’s for the taking! With the best divers in Australia and International teams travelling to compete, this will not be a competition to be missed. With a hefty collection of prizes, it will pay to train for this competition!
