We went away for a couple of days recently to support our niece Sanchia and her brother Luke who were taking part in a water skiing championship which was also a qualifier for the British team tour next year. They both did really well and gathered a hat full of qualifying points.

This is such a dangerous sport though and we did actually witness someone get badly hurt on the jump.

Anyway, I took a couple of photo's as I had my camera with me and I thought I would share them:

Sanchia aged 12




Luke aged 14



A couple of Pro's showing off:



Just didn't manage to frame this right but the speed they were travelling made it very difficult

Cheers everyone. I too like the one of Sanch, she knew she was performing well and you can see a slight grin on her face as well as fierce concentration. That was her last slalom run and it was a PB which was amazing. She won first in class.

In 5 years time she is predicted to be a British champion.

Hiya Pamela,

We are all really proud. There's a big competition on this weekend but unfortunately we will miss it as I am whisking Diane away for a well deserved weekend break.

I will keep you informed of Sanchia's progress.

Hope you are both well.
