TIMETABLE FOR DOHA WORLD CUP STOP

DOHA QATAR  TIMETABLE  FOR LAST 2008 STOP OF WATERSKI  AND WAKEBOARD  WORLD CUP SERIES
Apologies to all our World Cup fans as we will not have a Webcast this weekend. Access to an onsite  Broadband connection is the major challenge at some locations !

Competitors from 15 countries used the practice time available today in Doha Qatar to prepare for the Friday and Saturday final Waterski and Wakeboard World Cup Stop of the season. In perfect weather 28C conditions under clear blue Gulf skies, the competition MasterCraft boat was launched at 09.00hrs and practice continued till 17.00hrs as the sun set behind the spectacular and every changing Doha skyline.
