WaterSki Pro Slalom Shootout: MasterCraft Dominates the Day
June 13, 2007
Event one at the WaterSki Pro Slalom Shootout held at the beautiful Swiss Ski School in Clermont Florida, has already been an intense bout between some of the world’s greatest skiers. With the morning’s head-to-head slalom competition wrapped up, the first event’s winners have emerged. Taking the top spot was Jamie Beauchesne with a 2.5 @ 41 off, followed by Chris Rossi with 2 @ 41 off and MasterCraft’s own, Marcus Brown with 1.5 @ 41 off.
All three finalists, when given the choice, opted to ski behind the infamous world record tow boat, the MasterCraft ProStar 197 – a decision that obviously paid off as man and machine landed the top 3 spots. In fact, 9 of the top 12 finishers (6 of whom are MasterCraft sponsored athletes) were pulled by the MasterCraft ProStar 197, making this tow boat the common dominating factor at this event.
After a much deserved lunch break, the skiers returned to compete in a more laid back event, the “38 - Spin It To Win It” where competitors vied for conditioning bragging rights to see who could do the most buoys at 38 off behind a MasterCraft. In line with the first competition, Jamie Beauchesne came in first with 36 buoys (or six complete passes) followed by MasterCraft's Marcus Brown with 34.5 buoys and Terry Winter with 31 buoys.
