Skirace.net Ends After 14 Years Onlineon December 30th, 2010
After 14 years of publishing water ski racing news online, I’ve decided to call it a day and so I won’t be publishing any more news & updates. It’ll free up some of my time for other things.
I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the site over the years, which thousands of people all over the world have enjoyed. Whilst there are ski racing web sites scattered all over the place these days, skirace.net has remained a central source of international information where so many in the sport have turned to, to find either what they want, or where they can find it. There is always a daily stream of 1,000 or so page views which has peaked to over 20,000 on World Championship days.
Skirace.net will remain online as an archive, but I won’t be updating it or sending out any more news. There have been site moves, server crashes and changes in the way information has been published, so a lot of content has gone missing over the years, but there is still a decent archive that will always remain a good reference for the sport.
It would be great if someone else takes on the challenge to create a replacement for skirace.net. It’s a lot of work needing more than a season’s worth of enthusiasm but there might be someone out there so please step forward and take up the challenge. If you do, I’d be happy to help you get going.
On that note, I’d like to wish everyone a very happy, healthy, safe and successful 2011, and no doubt I’ll be seeing some of you at the races in the new year.
Thank you for reading,
