This event has been cancelled due to Covid.
2021 will mark the Battle of the Boats 23rd year. The event has grown to over 800 competitors, from 70 crews in 1999 to 180 crews in 2018.
Surf Clubs from all over Australia, in particular Sydney and the Central Coast, and as far afield as Queensland and Victoria compete in late February each year.
The Battle of the Boats has become one of the most popular and successful carnivals on the National Surf Boat calendar. Held two weeks before the NSW Surf Life Saving Championships, it is an opportunity for the top surf boat crews to polish their skills prior to competing at State and National level.
Held on pristine Elizabeth Beach, the Battle of the Boats is a prime location for competitors and their friends and family to enjoy the idyllic local area and some fierce high volume guaranteed racing against quality competition!
