    Default 2013 Singapore Waterski Championships - Bedok Reservoir - Sunday 14th April 2013




    • The 2013 Singapore Waterski Championships will feature the best local and regional waterskiers

    • Slalom, tricks and jumping are the three events of waterskiing.

    • The 2013 Singapore Waterski Championships will feature the slalom discipline

    • The slalom event is performed on one ski by an athlete attempting to negotiate his way around the outside of six buoys in a zigzag course without falling or missing a buoy in consecutive passes. An athlete receives one point for each buoy that he successfully rounds. The athlete who skis around the most buoys and scores the most points, wins the event. Each athlete begins with a 18-meter (60-foot) slalom rope at the minimum boat speed for his age/gender division. Once an athlete has run enough passes to reach maximum boat speed for his division, the rope is shortened in pre-measured lengths until he misses a buoy or falls.

    • There will be event categories for skiers of all abilities.

    • The best Skiers from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Japan and Singapore are expected to compete

    thanx for the info...
    this will be my 1st time to shoot at this location, would 70-200 F2.8 be enough on the focal length? or need to bring a teleconverter?

    Thanks for the heads-up.
    Will be a very busy Sunday - morning going to Ah Hood Road for the Thangyin water festival at the Burmese temple then noon to ACM for the thai's Songkran and late afternoon here, Bedok Reservoir. Probably will need to forgo one of these
