Belgium’s Vera Van den Bossche writes; The International Viersel Diamond Waterski Race is known all over the world. One thing is as hard as a Diamond: the racers love to compete in Viersel. Competing in the Diamond Race is like competing in the Olympics. Winning that same race is …the End.

We want you to compete in that race. Make it once again your race !!! As you know, we do our best to organise this “Jewel”. And a jewel you can win. The Diamond Award 2008 will be given to the winner of Formula 1 Men’s Racing. The other “best three” will be rewarded with a special golden hanger as usual.

You know what to expect from the Organisation of the Diamond Race, so do not hesitate and book your best Racing weekend of the year. And, as this is the 24rd edition of our Race, we plan to make a very special edition of it. So, be there!

In this map you will find the necessary information for competing in this race. If you need any more info, please do not hesitate and contact the Secretary General’s Office:
