With 30 successful Stops completed, numbers 31, 32 are just around the corner and again, the venues are the stuff of exotic travel brochures !
The World Cup Stop scheduled for Bogota, Colombia on August 13/15 has been postponed due to local political issues. This was quite a disappointment for our athletes and fans and it is hoped that it will reappear on the World Cup calendar again soon.
On September 16/18, the World Cup will head for yet another great downtown location and this time it will be at sea level. The venue will be in the City of Kuching on the Sarawak River in Borneo with its beautiful riverside esplanade providing perfect viewing for all. This will include both Wakeboard and the Stars of Florida Show Team. Again, huge numbers of spectators are expected to enjoy the spectacle.
Immediately following the Sarawak experience, the World Cup team will move over to the City of Linyi in China which lies directly south of Beijing and north of Shanghai. It is known as China’s geothermal city ! With a population of over 10 million, again huge numbers of spectators are expected to attend. This time the World Cup Stop will include Jump and Wakeboard.
As we get closer to the 2011 Stops, watch out for updates, photos and news reports here on our Website. As many of the top World Cup athletes will also compete in the World Waterski Championships in Dubna, Russia, on July 22/24, all eyes will be on the winners to see who is then likely to top our great World Cup Stops of 2011.
