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.

To have a chance of becoming the AquaX Champion for 2015 competitors must accumulate points over a series of rounds in the AquaX Championships. Per event competitors will receive a slice of the prize fund and trophies for winning on the day.
The format will remain the same with all competitors entering AquaX may also enter as a team by noting down their team name on their entry form. Teams may have as many riders as they wish, but only the top 3 scores per round will be calculated for the overall team Championship. Once the team is formed - i.e. a team name registered and the rider notes the team name on his/her entry form their points will be allocated to that team for the season. Please note; name cannot be retracted or points allocated to other teams once the season has started. The teams can be made up of any rider in any class. The team with the highest score will be awarded the Team Trophy.
The class is created to recognise the amateur (minimal experience) riders in the field. Instead of just recognizing the ‘Rookie of the Year’ at the end of the season a points table will be calculated throughout the season to find the top 3 Rookies of the Year. The winning Rookie of the each event, using the below points table, will also be recognised.
A rider classified as Amateur taking part in either the 300, 250, 200 or Ski classes will also score points towards the Rookie Championship. The points will be calculated by the amount of Amateurs within each specified AquaX class based on the AquaX Rookie Points table below. For example - if there are 10 riders in 200 class and 2 of those riders are classed as Amateur highest placed amateur would receive 9 points. If there were 4 Rookies in 300 class the winner would receive 11 points and the second placed rider would receive 10, third 9 and so on. See points’ table below for further clarification. See points table below and rule AX39.
|No. of Riders||1st||2nd||3rd||4th||5th||6th||7th||8th||9th||10th|
The Rookie riders in the AquaX Ski division must adhere to the Ski Amateur rules in order to receive Rookie class points. The Rookie riders in the Ski Class are scored separately to the elite riders despite racing with them.
The AquaX Cup determines the overall finishing positions of all the racers regardless of class. The Cup is not a championship class and no titles are awarded, but points earned will go towards calculating the AquaX World rankings.
The 100 plus riders that take part in the AquaX Championship, on both sides of the Atlantic, all have a chance to become the No.1 rider. A clever calculation, based on the amount of racers participating, the sea conditions, the quality of the field etc, all help to determine the who that rider will be.
The world ranked number 1 racer will get to wear the distinctive Lycamobile race vest to show his/her No.1 status. But this could all change when the World Rankings are recalculated throughout the year.
Prize money in the AquaX ski Class can be won by both Amateur and Elite riders finishing in the top overall positions. Prize money will go down to 3rd place if there are less than 10 riders. Or 5th if there are more than 10 riders. The break down is as follows.
A healthy prize purse is up for grabs for this year's AquaX Championships and the money will be spread across the three AquaX classes, and paid out based on entries. The more entries per class, the more money is paid out in prizes.
