King's Lynn's waterfront is home to world-class water-ski racing this weekend as Hunstanton Ski Club hosts the second Hanseatic Ski Race on the River Great Ouse.
Last year's event brought Formula 1, 2 and 3 water-ski racing to the river for the first time, and it returned yesterday and today.
A total of eight races are taking place over the two days, with competitors coming from far and wide to take part.
Organisers are hoping that this event will come to rival the famous Diamond Race which takes place in the Hanseatic town of Antwerp in Belgium.
Activities including food stalls, sweet stalls and ice cream, an outside BBQ and bar and face-painting are available on the waterfront.
Commentator Simon Gale, of Hunstanton, said after the wet weather yesterday he hoped the skies would clear this afternoon for the climax of the weekend, the Formula 1 racing which should begin at around 1pm.
