ORLANDO, FL (February 20, 2019) – Nautique is proud to announce the dates and locations for the 2019 Nautique Big Dawg World Tour as well as a new event format. As the premier tour for 34-mph over 35 slalom skiers across the globe, the Big Dawg World Tour is towed exclusively by the record-setting Ski Nautique.
The tour this year will include 2 qualifying stops at premier waterski venues as the top slalom skiers battle it out for a spot in the 2019 Nautique Big Dawg World Tour Finals.
Each stop for the 2019 season will include two qualifying rounds of 34-mph slalom skiing. The top 8 best single scores from the two qualifying rounds will advance straight to the Sweet 16 as seeds 1-8. Based upon cumulative scores of both qualifying rounds, skiers 9-24 will advance into a NEW Last Chance Round. The 8 winners from the Last Chance Round will move onto the Sweet 16 as seeds 9-16. See the 2019 NBDWT rules for details.
The Nautique Big Dawg World Tour Final will run the same as the qualifying stops, except that the elite 8 will be under the lights.
“The top 35+ skiers from around the globe will again be battling it out this year during the Nautique Big Dawg World Tour,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “I’m happy to see this tour flourish in 2019 behind the record-breaking new Ski Nautique, and I’m excited to see the how the new event format plays out.” Meloon added.
