Hunstanton hosted the World Water Ski Championships - 18 June 2005
Final Day 14th World Water Ski Racing Championships
 

The fourth and final round of the 14th World Water Ski Racing Championships have just come to an end with a spectacular day of racing in fast conditions for the Women, Juniors and Men's races.

In great weather we joined thousands of spectators on the beach wall to enjoy some very exciting racing. The Women started the day and it was Austria's Sabine Ortileb take the lead ahead of World Champion Mallory Nordblad. Malory crept back up the field and then moved into the number 1 spot to go on and win with Sabine in a good 2nd.

In Junior Boys we saw some great racing with the Sam Frey, Elliott King Brendan Stout and Ben Gulley. Sam moved ahead of Brendan and Elliott took a fall. That left World Champion Sam Frey go on to win with Brendan 2nd and Ben 3rd.

In the Women's it was Ann Procter from start to finish and although Kim Lumley hung on in 2nd, she lost a fair bit of ground as Ann went on to a convincing win with Erin Saunders 3rd.

In F2 Women, Lauryn Eagle put on another awesome performance winning the race in fine style ahead of Lena Feringa from Belgium with America's Lori Dunsmore taking 3rd.

The Men's was the final race of the day with Carlo Cassa powering into the lead with Todd Haig close by. Karl Brooks had 3rd and a number of others hung in there on the first leg. Todd stole the lead of Carlo and a one stage we saw Karl challenge Carlo but with no joy. The race finally settled and ended with Todd making it 4 out of 4, Carlo took 2nd and Karl a good 3rd.

A tremendous day of racing has ended the 14th World Championships, which has provided both rough and quick water conditions, providing us with some very worthy new Wold Champions.

Congratulations to all teams, to the organizers of this fine event and to everyone who has contributed to the hospitality and sportsmanship and friendship of world championship water ski racing.

A personal thank you to Mike Walters Chairman of the organizing committee, Mandy Rix, Paul Searle, Richard Connock and Simon Gale. Many other people made the event happen, but these people have helped me considerably through his event.
