The Super Air Nautique G23, the official tow boat for the WWA Wakeboard World Championships, will be the designated practice boat for this year’s competition. The two-day competition is composed of one practise day July 8, preliminary rounds July 9, and finals with prize presentation July 10. The event is free-of-charge and open to the public. Spectators can visit various booths positioned around the venue while enjoying the competition.
This year’s competition will be split into 13 categories for contestants of all ages, including the Nautique Men’s Open, Nautique Woman’s Open, Asia Yachting Team Award and more. Last year, the competition attracted nearly 150 participants from around Asia with over 600 spectators per day.
“Asia Yachting and Nautique look forward to sponsoring the Wakefest and Hong Kong Open Wakeboard Championships again this year,” says Asia Yachting Marketing Manager Mia Qi. “This is one of the biggest events in Asia and we’re excited to have such a big role in it all. Be sure to bring your family and friends out to the biggest wakeboard event in Hong Kong.”
Asia Yachting will also display a Super Air Nautique on dry land for spectators to have close access to the boat and learn more about the sport of wakeboarding.
