IJSBA is very proud to share the following news article about the actions of our competitor, Kole Cramer. Kole saw a fellow IJSBA member take a pretty nasty spill at a practice area and immediately jumped on a watercraft to bring the injured rider ashore.
This move earned Kole press in the Havasu News Herald and the following article was posted online: http://www.havasunews.com/news/havasu-teen-saves-life-of-fellow-ijsba-racer/article_098d32f6-70d3-11e6-ba44-43dfb7c1095b.html
In addition to being proud of Kole, IJSBA is proud of our Junior Racing program of which Kole has been a very successful participant. Junior Racing, and the Junior Stars support programs, have trained young persons to be competent operators of Personal Watercraft so they are skilled operators when they reach the age where they are allowed to operate PWC in public waterways. Clearly, Kole is alert to what is happening on the water and is able to efficiently use a watercraft to aid others in an emergency. Kole will be recognized at this year's World Finals event for his actions.
Junior Racing was created by Jacque Bryant who is a 2016 Hall of Fame inductee at the quakysense World Finals. Junior Starts was created by Lake Havasu City resident Chris Hagest, Kole Cramer is also a Lake Havasu City resident. We see a pattern of greatness here.
