After a very successfull event in 2021, we're back!

Planning to run from Friday18th till Sunday 20st with the finals.

Depending on the number of contestants, we might have some qualifications runs during the week leading to the event.

Every entrant will get at least 3 high tows over the water, HQ will be the Lake Dunstan Boating club where we invite spectators to watch the action unfold, we will have the BBQ going and if the weather doesn’t play ball some presentations from experienced pilots.
