Karen Brooks Becomes British Team Captain

After doing a terrific job, Derek Blackmore has stepped down as British Water Ski Racing Team Captain. Derek has been racing and contributing to our sport for decades and given a lot, and he will continue to do so as he now focuses more on his role as an International judge.

Stepping up to the mark to take on the role of British Water Ski Racing Team Captain is a very proud and capable Karen Brooks who needs little introduction to British, European or world water ski racing circles.

Karen said; “having been involved in water ski racing for over 35 years, I am delighted and honoured to represent Team GB on the international water si racing circuit”.

Karen was one of my 1st competitors in the 70’s when we were 12 year old skiers battling it out in races at Penarth Water Ski Club. Her sons, husband, parents, sister and in-laws have all been involved in racing and Karen’s history in the sport and knowledge of it is vast. So together with her incredible ability to organise and manage, she will no doubt do Britain proud in this role.

Karen is one of the most committed people in water ski racing and has given in many ways, including being the first person to step forward and give up some of her free time to keep going. We wish her well in this new role.
