The IWWF Racing Council has voted to support the bid from Spain to host the 18th IWWF Water Ski Racing World Championships at Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Sept. 5-15, 2013.
Water ski racing athletes from at least eight countries, including the United States, will compete in six divisions – Men's Open, Women's Open, Junior Boys, Junior Girls, Men's Formula 2 and Women's Formula 2 – for world titles at the biennial event. Men's Open and Men's Formula 2 competitors race for 1 hour, plus 1 lap; Women's Open and Women's Formula 2 competitors race for 45 minutes, plus 1 lap; and Junior Boys' and Junior Girls' competitors race for 30 minutes, plus 1 lap. Final overall placements will be determined from the athletes' three best race placements from four races.
