The syllabus is taught in conjunction with the AquaX rulebook and its function is to teach the rules and regulations of racing, rather than to teach riders how to race.
AquaX Racer Training teaches the pupils to race with due care and attention on the track and to respect the rules and fellow competitors in addition to the selection of aspects that help create such enjoyable and invigorating races. It covers, but is not limited to, everything from the start line alignment procedure, to flag and whistle communication, course design, turns, length and recovery in the case of an untimely dismount etc.
The training takes place and on the Friday before each event and pupils will need to arrive on time and bring their ski and equipment with them.
Once successfully completed the AquaX trainer will then sign off the pupil - Ready to Race – and they will be issued with a race licence.
Riders will need to contact the Series Administrator in advance to book a training session.
Please note: completing the AquaX Racer Training course does not necessarily mean a pupil will be allowed to race. The pupil must demonstrate, to the instructor, a level of competence in order to gain a pass before being allowed to race.
Before you can apply for your racing licence you will need to show a level of riding competence. To do this all new riders must first pass the RYA PWC Competency Course, commonly referred to as ‘The RYA’ by those in the know. Most riders have already taken the course and passed it with flying colours, but if you haven’t then visit the RYA website for information on RYA Training and to find a training centre near you - www.ryatraining.org
