Coraki Assault

Next weekend, December 3-4, the Richmond River will again be alive with the roaring engines and barefoot bravery of the annual Coraki Assault. The Tweed River Water Ski Club, who run the Coraki Assault, are expecting the boats and bare foot skiers to reach speeds of up to 160km per hour on Saturday during a number of demonstration runs. On Sunday the events kick off at 9am with races in the sub-juniors, juniors, womens, social and masters divisions. The race will be one lap of a 40km long course from Coraki to Woodburn and return.

That race should finish by 10am.

The second event, race four of the NSW and Queensland combined Water Ski Championship, which should begin around 10.45am, is over 80km for unlimited inboard and unlimited outboard.
