• Event Overview


    The Predator Bay Water Ski Club is excited to be hosting the 2017 Nautique Canadian Water Ski National Championships. Predator Bay is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and hosting Nationals will be a great way to celebrate with so many skiers from across Canada.

    We are also undertaking a number of initiatives to increase the value of the event for the Participants by including a second round for all skiers. The event will start on Wednesday, August 9 with familiarization for all provinces. Nationals events will run on Wednesday evening, all day Thursday and Friday morning and afternoon. 2017 Nautique Canadian Water Ski National Champions will be awarded on Round 1.


    Super Finals – Once the 2017 Nautique Canadian Water Ski National Championships are completed, a percentage of athletes will advance to condensed divisions and will ski against the best of the best. Friday evening will feature the Veterans. Saturday will feature the Open, U21, U17 and U14 age groups.

    Once final registration is complete the exact schedule and format will be posted. In addition we will have a consolation round for all skiers who do not qualify for the Super Finals. These skiers will have a 2nd round of skiing 1 event per person. The consolation round will begin Friday evening and then continue through Saturday. Our intent is that every skier gets get to ski in a 2nd round in at least one event.
