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.

Having made its debut in the UK in 2012, the high-octane action was brought across the pond and there was plenty of thrills and spills to keep the crowd entertained throughout three races. Despite the beautiful conditions, the water provided a difficult challenge for riders who had come from far and wide to compete.
Dominating from the front was multiple world and national champion Eric Lagopoulos, who powered to victory in all three heats to claim maximum points from the weekend. The restaurant owner from Sarasota served up a real treat to the fans lining the beach and his effort saw him officially crowned champion with the AquaX cup.
Lagopoulos couldn’t hide his delight as he cruised to victory, saying: “I had a great time out there and can’t wait for the next round in Pahokee.”
Finishing behind the overall winner was Tampa Bay resident Kevin Wassum, a computer software designer when not taking to the water. Jeff Thornton rallied ahead of his rivals and managed to secure third.
In the 250 class, Ron Levy ensured that the hype surrounding him lived up to expectations as he delivered a strong display to finish second overall, despite being more than 40hp down on the 300 class riders. Levy had only secured entry to the competition after winning a P1-sponsored slalom event, but the 29-year-old border patrol officer made the most of his opportunity.
