Team Nautique athlete Karina Nowlan came out on top at the Australian Open held at Stoney Park this past weekend in a unique format that put the men against the women giving the females a one buoy handicap for the event. Karina pushed it all weekend and ran 1@39 in the finals giving her a score of 2@39 with the handicap to take the win. Also skiing well all weekend was fellow Team Nautique skier; Brooks Wilson who came into the finals with a score of 2@39 but was just edged out of podium on Sunday finishing fourth.
“It was a great weekend and I’m really happy with the way that i skied. I couldn’t have expected much more as I had only been on the water for 9 days prior. Competing against the guys was a first, but lots of fun and in the end we were all very close to winning the title. Coming off of this tournament, I truly look forward to skiing at the Moomba Masters behind the Ski Nautique 200.” – Karina Nowlan
