2009 IJSBA World Finals
2009 IJSBA World Finals, October 10-18 Crazy Horse Campgrounds, Lake Havasu City, AZ
December 9, 2008
The IJSBA is pleased to announce the dates for the 2009 IJSBA World Finals. The World Finals will be held from October 10 through October 18, 2009 at Crazy Horse Campgrounds in Lake Havasu City. This year will mark the 28th installment of the largest PWC in the world.
While there are some details that must be worked out with the city, the IJSBA and Crazy Horse Campground are committed to preserve this event in Lake Havasu. Crazy Horse maintains an excellent location that has an established infrastructure which allows the IJSBA to put on the most efficient and cost effective event in the Lake Havasu City area.
Lake Havasu City restaurants, hotels, and other businesses have done so much to welcome us and so many of you have established great working relationships with these entities. Everything will be done to maintain this arrangement.
We realize that advance planning is necessary and we wanted to let you know, as early as possible, that you can safely make flight and travel plans to the Havasu/Mohave County area and know that they are secure. We can guarantee that the event will be held in this area on these dates.
Please stay tuned to the IJSBA for more information about the 2009 World Finals as we will be releasing information rapidly over the next couple of weeks.####

Does anyone have an estimate of the number of participants in this event?

I think we were at 300 entrants this year and they can race multiple events, but don't quote me I could be wrong. The attendance for spectators was higher than the past 3 years, this I know. But I'm guessing by the number of races we produced the entrant numbers, which I think were slightly down from the previous year.

2009 IJSBA - K38 Course Marshal Training Program
K38 International course Marshal attendees at IJSBA Parade of Nations
2009 K38 Certified Course Marshal Training Program
Third Annual Training Program Announced
Eight countries representing Personal Watercraft, Aquabike (Moto d' Acqua) competition events for the purpose of event management, often referred to as 'water patrol, water officials, or course marshals', have received their certification of professional development to date. These nations representatives are in good standing, and are the stewards of the 'best practices' of this type of event management.
In 2009, we will again be offering the K38 Course Marshal Certification program in the month of October for those who attend the IJSBA World Finals and the K38 International PWC Safety Summit proceedings. The certification is valid for a period of 3 years from date of issue upon successful completion of the training program.
Next available training program:
Dates: October 7-18th, 2009. K38 International PWC Safety Summit.
Location: City of Lake Havasu, Arizona USA
Host: International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA)
Recommended pre-requisite: K38 Open Rescue Boat Course, CPR, previous event management, or what is required by your administrative associate governing body for competition.
The International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA) is the worldwide sanctioning body for personal watercraft competitive racing. The IJSBA's Water Safety Director, Shawn Alladio will oversee the Course Marshal team at World Finals. 'Our team is the best in the world by far, Joe Barron, BJ, Fabio Annigoni and myself have over 68 years combined PWC experience! When we work on the water we know instinctively what the other needs, that's synergy and balance in action', states Shawn.
This is the third year in the history of the IJSBA that certifications have been issued for the role of 'Course Marshals'. The course goals are to implement 'safe practices and standards' that will benefit staff and participants to further ensure the safety record of personal water craft events. The level of service is not only one of prevention prior to the competition through safety checks of equipment and personal gear, but coverage and response in case of need on the track.
Students will further their outreach in supervision of competition events, enforcement of rules, safety standards, responsibilities, and effectively manage the needs of an competition event. 'We will be working with other IJSBA staff members, our focus is the water, but we depend on the land crews, the flagger, scorekeepers, race director, staging, EMS, after race tech, the racers themselves they are our anchors, we are one part of the 'body race machine', says Shawn.
These folks, upon successful completion of the course and tests will join an elite group of worldwide members in our personal water craft community to bear the credential of 'Course Marshal Certified'. The course will employ the use of Kawasaki Jet Skis and K38 Rescue Boards for training for both officiating, towing, vessel recovery, or water recovery needs of downed racers.
This will be the third year our IJSBA staff will have an international appearance for our competitors at the IJSBA World Finals, members are coming from Italy, Portugal, Spain, UK, Guam, Japan, Switzerland, and the United States
