For the first time ever we are staging Formula 1,2 and 3 water ski racing in the Historic

Maritime Quarter of Kings Lynn. Ready to rival the Diamond Race which is a world

renowned water ski race in Belgium, close to the Henseatic town of Antwerp this event will

be of a high octane nature with racing speeds of close to 100mph. Watch from the banks of
