2019 Boat Wakeboard Championships
Newferry Co. Antrim was the venue of choice for the 2019 Boat Wakeboard Championships. A Perfect Location on the River Bann with full facilities on site, it was indeed the ideal location with the perfect hosts, Newferry Waterski Club.
The boat of Choice, Mastercraft X-Stary, kindly donated for the event by Johnny Crawford & Paul Dillon, big thanks for such generous help.
Practice was held on Friday Night it what could only be termed as "INTERESTING" Conditions, wind howling, rain pelting , a real Irish Summer for sure.
Saturday saw calmer conditions, not ideal but a lot calmer and for the most part it stayed dry.
