AquaX is the fastest growing personal watercraft championship in the world. Its rapid growth is owed to a simple, yet challenging race format that appeals to todays personal watercraft users.
This year the program will include the unveiling of a professional level race series and expansion of two further championships in the Great Lakes region of the USA and in Southeast Asia.

AquaX Trainer Glyn Ovens goes through the rules of AquaX
The syllabus is taught in conjunction with the AquaX rulebook and its function is to teach the rules and regulations of racing, rather than to teach riders how to race. The theoretical module is taught in a classroom supported by a PowerPoint presentation.
AquaX Racer Training teaches the pupils to race with due care and attention on the track and to respect the rules and fellow competitors. It covers, but is not limited to, everything from the start line alignment procedure, to flag and whistle communication, course design, turns, length and recovery in the case of an untimely dismount etc.
The training is included in the AquaX entrance fee and will take place at selected venues before the start of the season (see calendar) and on the Friday before each event. Riders will need to contact the Series Administrator in advance to book a training session. Pupils will need to arrive on time and bring their ski and equipment with them as classes include both theory and practical assessments.
Please note: completing the AquaX Racer Training course does not necessarily mean a pupil will be allowed to race. The pupil must demonstrate, to the instructor, a level of competence in order to gain a pass before being allowed to race.
Before you can apply for your RYA racing licence you will need to show a level of riding competence. To do this all new riders must first pass the RYA PWC Competency Course, commonly referred to as ‘The RYA’ by those in the know. Most riders have already taken the course and passed it with flying colours, but if you haven’t then visit the RYA website for information on RYA Training and to find a training centre near you - www.ryatraining.org
