International Water Ski Racing Online Since 1996

Vienna Video & Results

On Monday I returned from the first round of the 2008 European Cup in Vienna where Austria hosted a superb event and over 60 teams teams from Europe, USA and Australia enjoyed a tremendous day’s racing on the River Danube in glorious 31’c sunshine.

This was the 2nd time I had been to an international ski race in Austria. The first being 26 years ago on the same river, in the town of Ardagger where Walter Kees and I took part in the first ever F2 European Championships in 1982. Last weekend, Walter and I witnessed some much quicker racing from the under 11’s to over 35’s when Austria did themselves proud by hosting such a great event.

For me, the highlights of the day’s action was when Wayne Mawer and Chris Stout fought it out for the first part of the race, then later when Darren kirkland came from last position to challenge Stouty on the last lap and over the line.

I took some footage on the day and condensed it into the following 8 minute video. I’ll try and do the same at the Diamond, Ramsgate, Catalina, France and Cardiff – with a better camera.
