$3 million for regional news outlets in NSW

The NSW government has announced a new $3 million fund to assist regional communities to have access to trusted news sources covering the stories that matter.


The NSWWA wave series is considered Australia’s premier wavesailing series and was the organiser of the recent Australian titles. On October 5, this season’s competition for wavesailors will kick off in Ballina. Fifteen professional windsurfers, including two time world champion and four time Olympian, Jessica Crisp, two time Australian champion Dan Berrry and 50 amateurs are gearing up for a season filled with great locations, wind, waves and spectacular imagery.

‘Last season’s strong wind, mast high wave conditions in Windang, showed how to shake up the final places in all divisions of the 2012/13 Severne Wave Series’, said Tim Williams, ex-president NSW WSA. ‘What was most impressive was that every competitor rose to the challenge of the conditions and supported each other through some of the toughest sailing we have ever had during a NSW WA competition.’

Event 1: Ballina – State Of Origin October 5–7

Event 2: Windang – Big Air November 16–17

Event 3: Wanda – Wave Jam December 7–8

Gerroa, NSW State Titles – February 13–16, 2014

Event 4: Gerrroa Teams Challenge  March 1–2, 2014
