Speaking at the event, Minister Chris Hazzard said:

“I am delighted to accept the kind invitation from Waterways Ireland to help launch this great annual festival in Coleraine.

“This is the first time the European and African Wakeboard Championship has been hosted on the island of Ireland and I congratulate Waterways Ireland on the standard of facilities provided and their excellent promotional work in forging a partnership with the Europe and Africa Wakeboard Boat Council”.

“This event goes a long way to inspire more people to discover and enjoy recreational activities on the inland waterways and this year, by hosting these Championships, they have raised that inspiration to a new level”.
