East Coast Watercross represents the IJSBA’s ‘Region 8’ which is made up of the following states: Maine, New Hampshire, Delaware, Rhode Island, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland.
Watercross is closed course buoy racing on personal watercraft, where as many as 16 watercraft compete on the same course at the same time with each one trying to cross the finish line first. This type of racing provides for an intense viewing experience for the spectators as well as the racers themselves! The action starts with the snap of a band at the starting gate near the shoreline where each racer has 2 holders who lift the rear of the watercraft out of the water. With the sound of racing engines and water flying the band snaps and every racer flies off shore to race for position at the first buoy! East Coast Watercross hosts 10 rounds of racing which are held on 5 separate weekends throughout the summer, with each day making up one round of racing. A typical race day will see 10 or more classes of racers composed of different skill levels, ranging from beginners to pro riders, various watercraft types and ages starting as young as 10.
