Festival of Sails to include world class ski shows

'Chaparral Stunt Team - Festival of Sails 2013'    © Festival of Sails
Festival of Sails 2013 Sailing Regatta is to be held from Thursday 24th to Monday 28th January and the Waterfront Festival will take place during Saturday 26th to Monday 28th January.

Chaparral Boats will present twice daily water ski and stunt shows at the Festival of Sails over the Australia Day Weekend, on the Geelong Waterfront.

The Chaparral Water Ski and Stunt Show is made up of skiers of all ages ranging from 10 to 50 years, some of whom have represented Australia in international ski shows and competitions.

Showcasing Chaparrals innovative sports boats will be an impressive lineup of accomplished champion boarders and skiers including, the worlds number two show skier, the current Australian male and female wakeboard champions and a number of other past World and Australian champions.

Performances will include a number of spectacular stunts that have wowed crowds around the world including the opening of the Olympic Games in Seoul and the famous Sea World ski show on the Gold Coast. Make sure you don't miss the daredevil finale as a Barefoot skier leaps from a helicopter and skis away.

Scott O’Hare from Chaparral Australia said 'we are excited that we can bring this world class ski show to Geelong to celebrate Australia Day in style; we know that the crowds will enjoy the performances and we look forward to demonstrating just how well our wake and ski boats perform, particularly when it counts, in front of a big crowd with professionals relying on our boats.'

Chaparral is one of the world’s biggest boat builders with a line up of 29 sports boats ranging from 18 to 42 feet including entry level bow riders and premiere motor yachts. They build the world’s only dedicated salt water wake boat and have enjoyed a solid reputation for innovation, quality and performance for over 48 years.

Chaparral will also have boats on display in the Club Marine Boating and Lifestyle Exhibition area of Fairnie Park during the Festival of Sails.

The Chaparral Water Ski and Stunt Show performances are best viewed from the festival site between Cunningham Pier and the Royal Geelong Yacht Club on the Geelong waterfront.

Show Times:
Saturday 26th January (Australia Day) at 12.00 pm and 7.45 pm
Sunday 27th January at 12.00pm and 4.30 pm
Monday 28th January at 12.00 pm.
