The Sarasota Ski-A-Rees, a staple of the Suncoast, have been around since 1957. When not traveling, the Ski-A-Rees present weekly water ski shows (see schedule of events ) that have become a Sarasota tradition for over 50 years. Their last one of the season is tomorrow, May 12, 2013.
Their membership is open to youth and adults who desire to educate, coach and supervise these adolescents interested in learning and developing skills related to water skiing and water safety. Their equipment, including the jump ramp, costumes , skis, clubhouse, boats and docks are maintained and improved through cooperative efforts of our club members, private business sponsorships and residents of Sarasota.
The Sarasota Ski-A-Rees are located on Ken Thompson Park adjacent to Mote Marine Laboratory and the show starts at 2pm. Also located nearby is the Save our Seabirds Bird Sanctuary.
