I haven’t raced a Region V event for many years, went up at the weekend and throughly enjoyed myself. Great to see so many kids coming through. The venue has improved out of sight, the beach was clean, no weed, a far cry from what it used to be. Congrats to the Region V committee to keeping this event alive. For the Sydney based people that don’t think there’s enough racing locally, get up to Region V.
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
