Mens F1 & F2 (Final Round)
The best race you could wish to see as WayneMawer and Chris Stout battled it out, side by side after Stout held the lead until the half way mark. Mawer crept up on Stout and moved up a gear to take the lead but Stout found some speed and challenged Mawer on the last leg of the race. A superb drag race across the finish line saw Mawer 1st, Stout 2nd and Dimitri Bertels 3rd.

F2 men’s results will come later

That sees the end of the three rounds in these 2007 European Water Ski Racing Championships.
