Ski-A-Rees Win NSSA Southern Regionals

The Sarasota Ski-A-Rees (Sarasota, Fla.) won the team title on Sunday at the 2018 Southern Regional Show Ski Championships, presented by Visit Central Florida, on Lake Silver in Winter Haven, Fla. The Ski-A-Rees earned top-scoring awards for pick-up boat crews, showmanship and high individual club act on the way to tallying a grand total of 1,916.67 points. The Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team (Oldsmar, Fla.), which earned top-scoring awards for dock and equipment personnel, towboat driving, sound crew and overall show placed second (1,838.93 points) and the Cypress Gardens Ski Team (Winter Haven, Fla.) finished third (1,570.5 points) in the six-team field.

In competitive show skiing, each club has one hour to present a theatrical performance on water skis. Judges score the acts by awarding points based on originality, presentation and execution. Elaborate costumes and staging intermix with music and fast action on the water as an announcer leads the audience through the show. 

The Southern Regional Show Ski Championships also featured athletes competing individually in adagio doubles, swivel, freestyle jumping and team jumping acts.
