TYPES OF EVENTS
1. (Closed Course) racing features a buoy marked, ½ to ¾ mile track that is designed to keep the competition tight and fans close to the action. Competitors begin to negotiate a series of left and right hand turns. (Sometimes a rolling start is used). Obstacles (e.g., log jumps and/or ramps) may be present.
2. (Sprint) races are typically 10-20 minutes in length and are run on a ½ mile to 1 mile oval track with a few additional turns added. With fewer turns racers get a chance to show off the speeds of their personal watercraft.
3. (Slalom) is a timed event, requiring a competitor to negotiate zig-zag left and right hand turns around five stationary buoys. Participants race against the clock, one at a time on a regulation slalom course. Each competitor receives two runs on the course with finishing position based on each competitors fastest run. A competitor who fails to negotiate completely around a buoy is penalized ten seconds for each buoy missed unless he/she goes back to correctly negotiate the buoy.
4. (Freestyle) event is an event where competitors get a chance to show their skills, expertise, and acrobatic abilities in executing difficult, challenging, and creative maneuvers. Competitor's routines are made-up from a series of choreographed tricks.
5. (Drag Racing) is an event where two personal water-crafts compete side-by-side in an acceleration contest. Both competitors race in a straight line from a standing start to a finish line. The first to cross the finish line wins the race. This event is scored on the bracket system, eliminating, or moving
competitors up the bracket as they compete.
