The Victoria Aqua Ski Club’s annual novice tournament will be held at Shawnigan Lake this weekend.

The competition will take place on Saturday and Sunday, beginning at 7 a.m. to ensure that there is flat water for the slalom events.

The tournament is open to the public, with a concession and silent auction. There is no cost to watch, but participant entry is $30 for one event, and $5 for each additional event. Categories this weekend include slalom, jump and trick.

The VASC clubhouse is located off Munsie Road on the east side of Shawnigan Lake.

For safety, the club hopes that boaters near the event will minimize their wakes while competition is taking place.
