    2008 JETRAID Edition: PERU

    Peru 2008 Edition

    The 2008 edition of the JETRAID will be held in PERU from the 29th of November to 7th of December. During this time we have been thinking about the diferents options and without taking out any chance to the others countries we took the decition of choose the mystic PERU for the 8th edition.

    Together with the PERUVIAN JETSKI ASSOSIATION and with the homologation of IJSBA we are going to have the WORLD IJSBA RAID CHAMPIONSHIP.

    The JETRAID organisation is proud to have this year the help of a group of fanatics of the jetski like his president Anibal Aliaga.

    In this edition we are going to cellebrate 10 years giving challenges and we promise to pilots and participants an unforgetable experience.

    We hope to have the sea book and the waypoints at the end of february and we keep on working to find economicals solutions to have a low budget for the pilots.

    When Patrick Nassogne first embarked upon the project that was to become the Corona Extra Jetraid in 1998 he never imagined that years later, the event would have acquired such international renown and status.

    The first Jetraid started out with 11 pilots and a handful of volunteers - billed as a rally raid adventure on watercraft.The number of participants has increased by 35 % each year since then and the event is now sanctioned by the International Jet Sports and Boating Association (IJSBA) as the World Raid Championship.

    Over the years, pilots from 15 different countries have joined us in this great adventure that remains as unpredictable as it is addictive.

    The Jetraid has grown in stature over the years and has visited seven different countries (Senegal, Mali, Mauritania, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Uruguay and Argentina) but make no mistake; the race is still aimed at everyone looking for a challenge to test their wits and their stamina.

    It’s a race through uncharted territory for professionals and amateurs alike, and it’s not all about being the fastest or having the most powerful machine. It’s all about reading the situation, reacting well under pressure, taking the right decisions at the right time, and finding hidden inner strengths.

    Some people join us for the scenery and culture. Some people join us for the adventure.

    Some people join us to win and some people join us just to reach the finish.

    The Jetraid lives up to the expectations of each and every one of them no matter what that expectation or their own capabilities might be.

    o [FONT='Times New Roman','serif']The JETRAID throught the years.[/font]

    As years come by and editions pass many things began to change.
    The first change, and most common to happen was the PWC pilots used. Over the years the technology used on the engines was improved. They become faster and larger on cc`s

    The second change was the increase of pilots and nationalities. Nowadays there are 15 countries on this event with a 20% of growth in people related to this event.

    Another important change is the retrieval of Corona as main Sponsor after the sixth edition in Turkey had to be suspended due to budget and sponsors.

    The return of the JETRAID was on 2006 in Uruguay, where many things changed in contrast to the other five editions. The most important change was location. It shifted from the African continent to the American with everything that implies; change of culture, change of scenery, etc. Also the incorporation of new pilots witch had never participated in this kind of event. It was the return of something lost that many were willing it came back.

    The seventh edition had very positive changes. They were the extension of the race programme with much more kilometers per day, harder sea conditions and more complex navigations. Other positive change was the incorporation of new pilots such as the Peruvian team or the Argentinean pilots.

    What can we expect for the next edition? First of all the hardest sea the jetraid has faced, much more complex navigations were a mistake can decide whether you come first or last, obstacles so difficult some of you wont be able to go through. With no hesitation I can say that this eighth edition will be as the others, unique, but there is something common to all editions that will never change. The spirit of joining once a year to live an adventure witch gives you something to talk till the next edition.

    Characteristics of the competition

    Types of competitions

    • Close course: close circuit between buoys of 45 minutes of race.

    • Oval race: speed race in a circle of 30 minutes with no refuelling.

    • Flash race: speed race in a short distance on a river.

    • Off shore: speed race in an open sea between two points with refuelling. Use of GPS.

    • Navigation race: Navigation between GPS points with refuelling and generally inside a river delta.

    • Endurance: Speed race in an open circuit of 90 minutes with refuelling on race time.

    • Slalom: Small race in a slalom one against the other or by time.

    • Enlace: part of the race which pilot must done in caravan and arrive to earn the points.

    Most of these competitions have critical consumptions of gas or complex GPS navigations, so probably the fastest pilot will not win but the smartest one with the best strategy of race.
