Hydro-Turf watercraft racers battle for the APBA Watercross bragging rights

Colonial Beach hosts newest 2010 Hydro-Turf APBA Watercross national tour site

With 25 turns around over 27 buoys in the Potomac River, professional and novice Jet Ski race enthusiasts gave watercrafts race fans the show of their lives. Last weekend, Colonial Beach took center stage as the 2010 Hydro-Turf APBA Watercross National Tour included the town as their newest featured tour attraction.
The featured race included the Pro Runabout competition, which was won by Dusting Farthing (men) and Amy Green (women) on both days of the event. Both racers are considered to among the best watercraft athletes in the country.
Other than the obvious bragging rights, as the winner of the competition, a $10,000 cash award and sizeable consolation awards were an incentive to finish first or at the top of the racer’s class.

Sponsored by the town of Colonial Beach and Westmoreland in partnership with the APBA, onlookers were treated with the rare experience of seeing some of the top racers in the world of water cross racing.
