Thrilling water ski races will wow spectators in Weston-super-Mare this weekend as competitors from across the country take part in a prestigious national competition.

Finalists from the south west water ski races will go head-to-head in Weston bay in the national offshore race.

The races are due to start from 10.30am on Saturday and will see competitors reach speeds nearing 100mph.

Weston Bay Water Sports Club will be well represented at the event after winning the national youth team championships last year.

The races will also be used to select the British team to compete in the European Championships later this year.

Crowds will have unspoilt views of the competition along the prom at Knightstone Island and can see the boats up close once the races are over.
