Welcome to Region V


REGION V AUSTRALIA


“MEMBER UPDATE”


Fellow Ski Racers, we are pleased to announce that after months of uncertainty and planning,

racing at Region V will kick off on the weekend of Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th December, 2021.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all to the ‘Place of Pace’, Lake Budgewoi, Toukley. Everyone is welcome.

While we have all been locked down, much has been happening behind the scenes to make this coming season the best it can be.

Last year we trialed a new and very popular Triangular Course, a Championship Round and we enjoyed some great social events.

This year we intend to continue innovating and we also look forward to running our Junior Development Program.

 

Behind the scenes, we have also been involved in the Heads of States and Clubs Forum at the invitation of Ski Racing Australia (SRA).

This forum was established to consider the future of our sport and what is needed to evolve it…….the reality is that, without a unified approach, our wonderful sport may fail.

Region V is committed to the future of our sport and along with the other clubs, we have made a decision to reunify with SRA.

This decision was carefully considered and we are excited at the opportunities this will bring for Region V.

To read more about this and Membership requirements, please read the attached ‘Season Launch and Update’.

NSWSRA – Region V Australia is an incorporated Club that is now in it’s 43rd Season.
Region V is known to many as the breeding ground of ski racing champions
and this is evident by our many Australian and World Champions.


Region V paints the perfect ski racing picture, as it caters for the absolute first timer to the professional ski racer,

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 F1 Womens 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 – F1 Mens 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 – F1 & F2 Womens 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 – F1 & F2 Mens 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 & F1 Womens 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 & F2 Womens 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.
