International Water Ski Racing Online Since 1996

1969 Dutch International Water Ski Race Video

Great Britain, Belgium and Holland compete in this 45 mile race in 1969. Brendan Bowles from Penarth Water Ski Club won the race. Thanks to Geoff Watson for finding this.

Former British International skier Cliff “Biff” Featherstone dropped me a note and said; “At the end of the Dutch race it was Terry Sleap holding Brendon Bowles with a young Billy Rixon stood to the far right of the photo, he would have been 16 at the time. I can remember seeing Brendons boat Vendeta at Hartlepool in 1968 we thought it was huge. It certainly brings back a lot of memories of how it used to be.”
