IJSBA is pleased to announce that we have received, this morning, the final approved event permit for the 2022 Jettrim WGP-1 World Finals.  Through 41 years of excellent management of the water along with the support and cooperation of the local authorities, entities, community, and oversight organizations we have been able to keep this event going while evolving with the needs and expectations placed on an event of this size.  

This is the first post-pandemic World Finals and it is going to be well attended.  We expect a lot of people are going to be excited to gather and to embrace the energy of this event that exists nowhere else in the world.  IJSBA is asking all competitors to be diligent in ensuring we maintain the level of decorum expected of us as guests of the park, the lake, and Lake Havasu City.  This means strict adherence to the laws of area.  

IJSBA's permit allows suspension of the navigational rules only within the boundaries of our permitted area.  Once a participant leaves the permitted area, which is marked by buoys, that person is subject to all applicable laws which include watercraft registration, fire extinguishers, and, most of all, riding in a predictable safe manner in open water... and even more most of all NOT RIDING IN THE CHANNEL OR USING MARKER BUOYS FOR PRACTICE TURNS.  Failing to abide by these rules may subject the watercraft operator to criminal discipline including fines, citation, and watercraft impounding.  In addition, local authorities monitor conduct from the water and other vantage points.  The first preference of enforcement is for the authorities to report unacceptable conduct to IJSBA and see if we have caught it and applied and documented our own mandated fines and disciplinary measures.  If we have not done so then more strict scrutiny is put upon the event along with perimeter patrols.

More information about navigation rules can be found at the United States Coast Guard:  http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=navRuleChanges. The way to avoid any conflicts, fines, and other hassles, please follow the rules of the event and the laws of the lake.  We want to show that our racing community will rise and surpass the level of stewardship expected of us.
