With a large number of competitions, it is a great pleasure for Lanctôt to accompany Jean Cloutier for the Canadian National Water Ski Championships which will begin on August 7, 2019 at the Club de Ski Nautique St-Donat.

A look back at a great sportsman

Passionate about water skiing, he began to practice it on a regular basis from the age of 8. At the age of 12, he started competing with his trainer to have fun and discover this new world. Very quickly his favorite discipline became jumping and competitions followed. Cycling, downhill skiing, water skiing... as many disciplines as Jean assiduously practices on a daily basis and at a high level.

After several years of water skiing competitions, he shares this passion with one of his daughters. In 2015, he took over the direction of the competitions with her: and it is each in their category that they finished on the first step of the podium.

Since then, Jean Cloutier has competed in two "Senior World Championships" and finished 4th on both occasions in the jump events in Spain in 2016 and Chile in 2018.

He is resetting the scores and preparing to face his opponents at the National Championships next August. For this occasion, he will be supported by Lanctôt Ltée: a company of which he is currently Vice-President. He will proudly wear Vuarnet, one of our flagship brands at Lanctôt Ltée for several years.

This flagship brand is at Lanctôt as well as at home. For more than 30 years, the company has been passionately distributing this beautiful brand: from sunglasses to t-shirts and super trendy accessories.

The Championships

The National Water Ski Championships will be held from August 7 to 11, 2019. Athletes will have to compete in tricks, jumps and slaloms during these 4 days of competition. The juries present to rate and reward the best of them will be the judges and officials of the Club de ski nautique St-Donat in Quebec City. The lake surrounded by mountains that protect from the wind is a great place to practice this sport and compete.

This sporting event will be an opportunity to support our runner and share a friendly moment around the different stands of the brands, food... There will even be a family barbecue on Friday.
