The conversation started months ago, but spiraled quickly under its own gravity into a far larger sphere when I posed the question, “If it was up to you, what would you do differently?” It doesn’t take a whole heck of a lot of looking to learn that we at The Watercraft Journal are particularly fond of offshore racing. The challenges of offshore racing are unlike those found elsewhere – apart from an ironclad commitment to pushing through pain and exhaustion to persevere.
In talking with‘s fearless leader, owner and organizer Mark Gerner, we learned how deep his desire to dramatically grow the world of American offshore racing was. “People think I’m an event promoter. That’s 100-percent not the case,” Mark admitted. “I help rally everyone to go, but I’m not putting on the races.”
But that’s not entirely true. Anybody who knows Mark or the crew know that they do much, much more than just “get the word out.” And it’s because of this steely drive to help grow offshore racing that PWCOffshore recently announced their “Offshore Racing Promotions Guidelines for Promoters.”
According to’s Facebook wall, “PWC Endurance and Offshore PWC Racing needs more promoters and more races throughout the world, especially here in the United States. Have you ever thought about becoming an offshore PWC and/or PWC Endurance Race Promoter – here’s a checklist and set of guidelines we put together that might assist you in doing a race. Great Lakes, Northwest, Northeast, Texas area, Louisiana? Why not? Let’s go racing.”
We at The Watercraft Journal are honored to have played a small role in this document’s development and looking forward to seeing these guidelines put to good use soon!
