Record falls at ski club’s annual tournament

Some three dozen water skiers took part in the competition on Aug. 8 and 9.

An unofficial provincial record was set and several competitors went home with cash in their pockets after Victoria Aqua Ski Club’s annual novice tournament at Shawnigan Lake earlier this month.

Some three dozen water skiers took part in the competition on Aug. 8 and 9.

“We had approximately 35 skiers, great conditions,” club spokesperson Tanya Leech said. “We had lots of people ski deep into short line in slalom, which is great.”

Water skier Damaris Barry was the big winner in the women’s competition, and also set an unofficial B.C. record in slalom.

The big event was the money jump, where the top 12 jumpers from the weekend were split into teams of four, and each team went home with a prize.

“The money jump is we take some of our jumpers, either top 10 or 12, and make three teams,” Leech explained. “They jump and their combined jump scores are how they win.”

The winners were the team of Dane and Danica Entzminger, Christopher Horwood and Niki Leech, who each took home $125, although all 12 jumpers in the contest got some cash.
