The annual four round slalom event placed at Drepani water ski laggoon on 8-9/6 2013 had a tremendus success as we had a very special guest, the 11 times world record holder and 6 times World Champion, 12 time pro Tour Champion, the 14 US Masters Slalom title holder, Andy Mapple. Andy gave a different "air" in the event as many of us had never watched such great skiing in real! The weather conditions were challenging as we had flat water and in some of the rounds and difficult conditions in other. However, we had 45 skiers competing of all categories Open Men, Open Women, Under 14 boys , Under 14 girls, Under 17 Boys, Under 17 girls, Men +35, Men +45 and Men +55. Andy introduced us the Mapple skis and some of us skiing on them already. Mapple team took the win in ALL three Senior Divisions, Robbie Alexander in SEnior 1(35+), Andy Mapple in Senior 2 ( 45+) and Sotiris Kyprios in Senior 3 ( 55+). Congrats!
Congratulations also to "Big George"- George Gabriel who skied on a Mapple ski and came 2nd in his division Senior 3 (55+)

Along with the Golden Retriever Chris, the cat Ginger, the Passage family now owns a horse in the Resort who is called Bebis! ( from baby) Not because he is that small- he is already 5 years old, ready for horseriding, and we are happy to allow our guests ( who are experienced with the sport) to take him for a ride. For non horseriders, we are happy to have you on his back and try a small ride along with us. The good news are that in the area a horse riding school has opened and if any of our guests does not water ski, or want to have proper horse riding lessons- that is possible. Also is possible to take the horses ( for experienced riders only) and go for an excuisite ride in the beautiful area of Trizina.
