Allhallows Open Ski Race

ALLHALLOWS OPEN SKI RACE 21st JULY 2013

I am sorry to inform competitors that the Allhallows Yacht Club Committee of Management have declined our request to hold the above event and that subsequently it is now cancelled.

Committee decision who knows !! In my opinion "no racing soon equates to no boat club" just a boat yard with a bar ! sums it up!

Its a great shame as Allhallows was one of the premier clubs in the south east for Ski Racing sadly no more, I have attached a few photos of one of the race days many years ago that made the club so great, in September 1979 Allhallows held one of the rounds of the first World Water Ski racing championships.

That looks to me like a very young Bob Eldred in picture #1, now club Commodore. Great photo's Derek all caravans there now, but a sad show, really thought the Open race went well last year. I agree a very popular club to race at ! who knows we may be back

"V" is 1st Aug 1979 to 31st Jul 1980.

The Ski Racing Worlds are held in odd numbered years and the first one was 1979.
