Founded by a representative of the Sultan of Brunei in 1827, Kuching City is the largest on the exotic island of Borneo. Ireland is in the line up with Sian Hurst and David O'Caoimh. This tropical location, with the support of the Sarawak State Government represented by the Ministry of Tourism and Heritage, Sarawak, will host this 31st World Cup Stop of the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) and Waterski & Wakeboard World Cup Sdn.Bhd. Initial event details were released at a Press Conference last January in Kuching and all preparations have now been completed.



The IWWF World Cup Series was established to bring the very best Waterski and Wakeboard athletes to important high population centres around the world. To date these have included London, Paris, Alexandria, Moscow, Beijing, Singapore, Doha, Liuzhou, Chuncheon, Putrajaya, and many others. Following this Kuching Wakeboard World Cup Stop, it will move on to Linyi in China.

This Stop will include Wakeboard and the Stars of Florida, a spectacular Show Ski Team from Florida, USA. They will join the Malaysia Day Celebrations in a water parade on the Sarawak River on the night of September 16th which will culminate with riverside fireworks displays.



Not only has this Kuching World Cup Stop been scheduled to coincide with the Malaysia Day celebrations, it will also form part of the birthday celebrations of the Governor TYT Yang Di-Pertua Negeri Sarawak. For the first time it will also be staged in conjunction with the historic 2011 Sarawak Regatta right in the centre of Kuching City. Dating back to 1872, the Regatta attracts an enormous variety of colourful boats including Dragon Boats, Long Boats, etc. During the four days involved, over 100,000 spectators are expected, plus 400 boats 6,000 paddlers - and of course the very best World Cup Wakeboard Riders from 20 countries. The unique combination promises to make this one of the most spectacular World Cup Stops to date.

The special MasterCraft X2 Wakeboard competition boat has already arrived in the Port of Kuching and will play its vital part throughout the World Cup Stop on the Sarawak River.

For those not fortunate enough to be able to attend the 2011 celebrations in Kuching, they will nevertheless be able to enjoy both a FREE STREAM live Webcast from the waterfront and also replays after the event. The time zone is GMT + 8 hours. The Webcast Links are as follows :
