The Hanseatic Ski Race will Take place on the 17th & 18th June 2017


Welcome to the official website for the Hanseatic ski Race event 2017. For the third time we are staging Formula 1, 2 and 3 water ski racing in the Historic Maritime Quarter of King's Lynn. Ready to rival the Diamond Race which is a world renowned water ski race in Belgium, close to the Hanseatic town of Antwerp this event will be of a high octane nature with racing speeds of close to 100mph. Watch from the banks of the Ouse whilst competitors race across the choppy water surface. The Event will also include the 2nd round of the UK National race.


We hope this will be an unforgettable experience and one to continue for years to come.
