The Tweed River Water Ski Club runs the East Coast Ski Racing Series; this is a year long point score series consisting of four Ski Races held in locations throughout the Northern Rivers region of N.S.W.
The first race is the Nev Wilson Memorial ski Classic held in July on the Tweed River, then the Susan Island Ski Race held in Grafton on the Clearance River in August, followed by Coraki Assault held on the Richmond River in November and the Craig Shepherd Memorial also held in Coraki in March.
Every ski race caters for all skiing abilities ranging from absolute beginner ski racers to the elite with classes of Next Gen, Sub Juniors, Juniors, Novice, Women’s, Social, 60 and 70 MPH, Masters and Unlimited Inboards and Outboards.
This competition is tailored toward grass roots Ski Racing and whole family participation. Skiers can only use social race skis up to 70” long and ski rope lengths of 140 feet, this helps to lower speeds and enhance safety.
This series is great fun and an economical way to ski race, it is also a great entry point into the exciting sport of water-ski racing and the club encourages new entrants into the sport, our motto is Fast Family Fun.
