The Ocean Thunder Series will be a 4 event series run from 15 February – 28 March 2020.

Each event will feature multiple IRB races, where qualified drivers and crew will showcase their skills in the ocean. 
The race formats have been slightly modified from the usual but this is to reflect the current NT conditions and to reach maximum participation with an emphasis on fun and friendly competition. 

IRB race formats include:
- Mass Rescue
- Team Rescue
- IRB Rescue

Teams are to be made up of 1 qualified driver and 1 qualified crew. 
 - Due to our current stinger season, live patients will not be used. Floating training dummies will be used to replicate a live patient.
