Tow Wanted for 2013 Season

A very keen and fit skier is hoping to find a pull in the Support Race for this seasons eight race national series. Essex based and looking to compete in the Veterans Class.

Just to confirm, the Support Race is 35 mins long and consists of: Veterans (35 & over), Junior boys & girls, Open Class and Ladies. In the Support Race almost any boat from an 18' Phantom to a Bernico TS can compete.

If any one's up for it please PM me and I can pass on your details.

Bump!

Alan skied last season behind a 21 Cyclone with an Evinrude 250HO so something like that would be ideal.

For anyone considering entering ski racing for the first time there are some differences in the crews licencing and boat scrutineering.

For example, you do not need a dive certificate or a dunk test as there are no canopied classes. If your boat is a common recognised make then you will not require a measurement certificate but the maximum length allowed is 6.5m. There is no official training to undergo before you are allowed to race with up to 300hp and in recent years the annual cost of the licence has been £35.

I have been racing in the class for skiers aged between 12 and 14 pulling my daughter and we had ten entries last season. This season we will be running six offshore plus two inshore sprint venues.

I would be more than happy to try and answer any questions to help by PM.

Hi Ash, thanks for the offer. I've already messaged Alan and he should get back to you directly.
