Waterski Racing Worlds race One Postponed 24 hrs Due to Dangerous Seas

SEPTEMBER 10 MEDIA RELEASE:┬áIn a difficult decision for event officials, race one of the 2011 World Waterski Racing Championships was postponed 24 hours today, with the Women’s F1 and F2 classes scheduled to start at 8:00am tomorrow.

WIth strong winds and over 1.5 meter swells recorded at the far end of the course, officials, in conjunction with the Redcliffe Coast Guard agreed that the conditions would make the rescue of a fallen competitor too risky.

With winds expected to die down gradually throughout the week, officials and race organisers have confirmed the original RACE ONE schedule, will be re run tomorrow morning, with the Junior competitors and men’s classes to follow respectively.

Spectators are reminded that entry to Pelican Park is free, with limited parking available on site. A shuttle bus will also commence tomorrow, to transport additional visitors from free parking at the Redcliffe Showgrounds.
