Get ready for the 2023 Oakberry Acai NSW Surf Life Saving Country Championships at Forster.
The NSW Surf Life Saving Country Championships is the premier event for regional-based surf life saving clubs. The 2023 event sponsored by Oakberry Acai is at Cape Hawke SLSC at Forster's One Mile Beach.
The Country Championships is second only to the NSW Surf Life Saving Championships in size with an expected 1,500 competitors, 200 officials and around 4,000 spectators over the three day event.
Surf Life Saving NSW Director of Surf Sport, Don van Kiempema said the location, as well as the beach itself, would prove an ideal setting for the event.
“The location with nearby Forster Tuncurry as a major coastal centre in the region provides excellent accommodation options for participants,” he said.
“Its location on the NSW Barrington Coast will ensure accessibility for all country clubs north of the Hunter as well as reasonable proximity for our southern participants.
“One Mile Beach is an excellent physical location to host the Championships in terms of prevailing conditions, accessibility and beach size.”
