Wanna see boats with skiiers waving up boats drivers, while going at speeds that make the motorway traffic appear to be crawling? Once a year, nine teams of ten battle it out on the water between the Esplanade, BP motorway and Petone Wharf. Your'e rarely going to be able to see ski racing this close up.

A howling northerly will leave the corner in the lee of the hills smooth while cutting up the back straight. A southerly will see a course change into Evans bay. These lot have a different sense of ski-able conditions.

If it's a primo day, they'll just go faster. The beach outside the Wellington Water Ski Club rooms is 100m from the finish line action. Needless to say, that corner of the harbour is closed to other water users for the 2-day event.

Food and other essentials onsite, but please remember to slip slop slap.
