The NWSRA Region V Australia (Region V) Race Series is a Water Ski Race Event held on Lake Budgewoi at Toukley, NSW.

Region V has conducted a racing series on Lake Budgewoi each year since 1978 and is a family and community focussed sporting organisation.

Region V has a proud heritage of developing great competitors, producing State, Australian and World Champions and has led the way in introducing many safety measures now implemented broadly by SRA.

Our Racing Season usually encompasses five weekends, however, this year we may elect to limit this to four events following a very busy 2023 year for Ski Racing Australia. Each round of our aquatic event will take place over two days. For the 2023/2024 Racing Season, our dates are as follows:-

with a fantastic family atmosphere…

Region V has history, it has pace, it has fun and most of all, Great Racing!

Ann Procter – 4 Time Open Women’s World Champion
Region V was Ann’s first ever race, she feels that there is no better place for new people to learn how to race in all different water conditions and be helped along the way by people who have been racing for years.

Jason Walmsley – Open Men’s World Champion
Jason says that Region V has gone a long way to helping him in his skiing career, because it “sharpens you up”, teaching you to always be on your toes, because as soon as the flag drops, you have to be ready to go, due to the sprint nature of the racing.

Tania Teelow – Formula 2 & Open Women’s World Champion
Tania first started at Region V in its first ever year in 1978. She feels that Region V style of racing has helped her in many ways, but predominately the close racing with the pressure of boats being beside you.

Chris Stout – Formula 2 & Open Men’s World Champion
Chris feels that Region V is by far the best for newcomers because you learn a lot quickly and everybody helps each other, together with the races being short and fast, he says the best part about Region V is the excellent racing, with a whole bunch of mates, great family atmosphere and making heaps of friends of all different ages.

Trudi Stout – Junior Girls & Open Women’s World Champion
Trudi feels that Region V has helped to build her confidence over the years with the close and competitive racing. Trudi said Region V is fun because there is always someone to race…

Jack Houston – Two Time Junior Boys World Champion

Jack likes the fun atmosphere at Region V and the fact that the water conditions are never the same and always keep you on your toes, he feels the course being like a World’s Course, together with having the boats always racing very close and the tight fast corners have helped him over his junior years.

Kelsey Feros – Junior Girls & Formula 2 Women’s World Champion

Kelsey likes Region V because of the short, fast, competitive racing and feels that Region V has helped her win a World Title because you quickly learn how to corner fast and gain valuable experience with boats being right next to you, together with the fast one grid starts.
