IJSBA Watercraft National Tour debuts at Colonial Beach

Last weekend, the mad rush for speed was all the rage at Colonial Beach. For the second year in a row, Colonial Beach became the setting for high-speed watercraft races, this time hosting the Upstate Watercraft Promotions - International Jet Sports Boating Association’s Liberty Cup. Colonial Beach was the sixth stop for IJSBA’s eight-city tour.  Using pure speed and adrenaline, professional and novice watercraft racers revved up their engines before speeding out amongst a series of buoys that were stationed in the Potomac River, adjacent to the Colonial Beach Town Pier.



Sanctioned by the IJSBA, local aquatic race fans were treated to a three-day whirlwind display of speed and power that featured 35 different classes of racers in three different divisions. More than 700 people from all of over the country attended the event to either compete or support the competitors in a technical role. Most of the competitors were qualified to compete at the World Finals in Lake Havasu, Ariz.
Area sponsors of the race were the Colonial Beach Chamber of Commerce and Dockside Restaurant & Blue Herron Pub.

On Saturday night, competitors put down their racing attire for a night out on the town at Dockside Restaurant & Blue Herron Pub. The venue featured a bikini and swimsuit contest, courtesy of the Jettribe Fashion Show.

The next stop on the tour for IJSBA is Triple Crown of Watercross in Lake Hartwell, Ga. The race will take place Aug.12-14.

Corporate racers who playfully competed in the opening day of the race included Tow Boat US, Team Lighthouse, Colonial Beach Volunteer Fire Department, Rankin’s, High Tides, Thunder 104.5 FM, Riverboat 95.9 FM WGRQ, Beach Services and Team Dockside.
