latest race, the Viersel Diamond race in Belgium.

For those of you who already think we are nuts for skiracing, this is another step again! Concrete walls lining the circuit, boats running within 6ft of other boats, skiers and the walls (sometimes even closer!) one of the most dangerous races on the calendar.. also probably the most exciting!

enjoy!

The Psycho Clowns boats were wrapped by these people:

These are links to a couple of Belgian photographers sites who have loads of pictures of the European boats:
