  • 2023 Season

Gate 1 – Opens 1 February 2023.  All boats regardless of whether having competed or not must be re-scrutineered. 

**  New boats for the 2023 season must be scrutineered prior to their first race **

Gate 1 note – All V-drives must have their prop and rudder crack tests.



  • The age of competitors prior to midnight on 30 June 2022 determines their eligibility for age divisions for the season. Rule 8.4a (ii).  

You’ll note that there has been a change to the calendar for the “season” year, but not to the “age division” year.

The Ski Racing Australia season is now the calendar year – membership runs from 1 January to 31 December. This is a requirement for insurance and

unfortunately there isn’t any way to change this at this time.

However, there has not been a change to the age divisions.

As before, a competitor’s age on 30 June(annually) determines eligibility for age divisions.


What does this mean for you right now?

For juniors, and those seniors racing age divisions, your division may have changed on 1 July 2022. 

This may also mean your age-related speed restriction has changed.

If your age/speed division has changed on 1 July 2022, eligible members will not be charged any additional fees to go “up” a division for the remainder of 2022. 

SRA’s membership administrator will be updating the system to reflect these changes. If you think you should be changed, or if you want further clarification, email


What should you do next year?

When you are completing membership applications for the 2023 season (1 Jan 2023 – 31 Dec 2023), note that your age division (and any associated speed restriction) will automatically be updated on 1 July 2023. At this time, SRA has not determined if an additional fee will be payable due to the mid-year change in 2023.


We’re aware that these changes might cause some confusion for age division racers, as the calendar year doesn’t align with the summer season and existing ski racing seasons. However the new arrangement has been determined in consultation with the state ski racing bodies.

We can’t wait to see you all back on the water.

Let’s go racing!
