European Season Hots up

Todd Haig, Wayne Mawer, Dimitri Bertels, Kim Lumley, Darren Kirkland, Chris Stout, Brady Hoggins and Ben Gulley are just some of the well known names from the world stage that are competing in Europe this year.

The 2008 European water ski racing season has already kicked off with nations racing in their own respective countries. Top teams have their sights firmly fixed upon the traditional European circus of races which takes place across the European Union. This consists of The European Cup Series and The European Championships.

European Water Ski Racing - Truly International

The European Cup Series kicks off on the weekend of 21/22 June in the spectacular city of Vienna. This is followed by the Diamond Race and round 2 of the European Cup at Viersel in Belgium on the following weekend.

Just days later teams will converge upon Ramsgate in Britain for four rounds of the European Championships which are packed into 5-12 July.

A 12 hr flight to the USA will be on the agenda for a number of skiers to take part in the 60th Catalina Water Ski Race at Long Beach on the following weekend, before heading back to Europe to continue their quest to win the European Cup.

The European Cup Series re-commences on 2/3 August at Geel in Belgium, then on 23/24 August, deep in the heart of France at Eguzon (Chateauroux). On 30/31 August, teams will travel to Cardiff, in Wales for the final round of the 2008 European Cup.

The European season of international races finally finishes on 21 September at Harderwijk in the Netherlands for an invitation 2-up race.
