1 Nationals letter from BOPMPBC

To the NZMPBA Committee,
The recent committee meeting of the BOPMPBC discussed the proposed future NZMPBA National Championships at length.
We offer the below as our proposal as when and how this regatta might take place.

When: Friday 27th thru Sunday 29th March 2020.

Please note this last weekend of March avoids any clash with Easter until 2024, it also avoids the 2020 Wellington Offshore potential dates. The BOPMPBC 2 Lap Sprints and 100m Speed Runs normally run this weekend, would be brought forward to mid / late February.

This time of year captures what is usually quite settled and warm weather here in BOP, daylite savings is still running and provides “off peak” accomodation considerations.

The overall event could be:

Friday: Open water practice 12 noon until 3pm.

Saturday: 8am Gates Open
8.45am Drivers Brief
9.00am Racing begins
12 noon Lunch ( water closed)
12.30pm Racing continues
4.00pm water Closed

Sunday 8am Gates Open
8.45am Drivers Brief
9.00am Racing begins
12 noon Lunch ( water closed)
12.30pm Racing continues
4.00pm Water Closed
4.30pm Prize Giving

Proposed Classes:
T1 Thunderboat
Sport Petrol Hydro
P2 Hydro ( Note: all P2 classes will also allow entry of P1 powered craft)
P2 Tunnel
P2 Mono
P3 Hydro
P3 Tunnel
P3 Mono
Electric P Sport Offshore
Open Electric
Open Oval

Each class will run 4 heats per competitor, all heats run consequtively (except electric classes) until event is complete. The Electric classes will run 2 heats of each class each day to allow charging time. ie 1 x heat of P Sport Offshore and 1 x heat of Open Electric Sat Morn, then same Sat afternoon, same again Sunday.
All P2 based classes will run Saturday, with all P3 classes and Open Oval to run Sunday (allows overnight for motor swaps)

We estimate the entry fee for the event at $50 per competitor. This will include a BBQ lunch each day for all competitors. Hot and cold drinks, and perhaps other food would be available to purchase.
The base entry fee will also include inscribed medals for first place winners.
We are still contemplating some sort of token souvineer item for each competitor, of which the cost of would be passed on in addition to the above.

The BOP Club accepts that it will be responsible for all organising and running of the event. We do however need the NZMPBA to work with us in promoting the event to the NZ membership, and that any NZMPBA Comittee member attending the regatta still makes themselves available to help with regatta duties.
In respect of the above, then 10% of profit ( after all expenses ) is funded to the NZMPBA.

Please table this at your next NZMPBA Committee Meeting to consider and reply.

Yours Sincerely,

Steve Trott

Correspondence Discussion

1 See above

2 Committee have read and approved to be added to Forum

3 See calendar

Correspondence out



1. 2020 Calendar sorted ready to be published on the Web site

2. Johns Suggestion re Presidents Cup
The current system is causing animosity and we need to look at removing the emphasis from NZ1, NZ2, NZ3. To be replaced with a medal, plaque, card or something similar.
3. Nigel raised Peters and other comments after Wellington Offshore on Forum on points allocation for Offshore. They are proportionally unfair, and the committee needs to look at a system to rectify this. ( it will up for approval and implementation before next years first round)
4. Peter reported the virtual yellow flag trialled at Wellington Offshore worked although the odd driver still travelling too fast past rescue boat.
5. Tow ropes on offshore boats are also causing some grief with rescue boat people. Drivers need to address a simple system that makes it easier to retrieve.

Committee is continuing to look at the rules

Next Committee Meeting February 3rd

Meeting closed 9.40pm

Moved: Phil Fowler

Seconded Trev Terry
