WaveRunner owners from across the UK descended on a sunny Jet Ski World, in Margate, Kent to enjoy the hospitality of Xtreme Action and the Jet Bou team, where the inaugural Jet Bou UK 2 day WaveRunner festival took place.
Kent Marine Police, Yamaha Motor (UK) Ltd and Aqua X were also in attendance, providing both on shore, and water borne information and support for the event.
Jet Bou organised an escorted tour of the Shivering Sands Fort, Thanet Offshore wind farm and the thriving seal community off the Kent coast, many sights which the WaveRunner owners had not experienced before.
Kent Police Marine Unit deployed their Delta RIB powered by twin F150 Yamaha outboard engines, ensuring everyone got the most from the event and remained safe, whilst on shore the PCSO’s were able to use the latest technology from Data Tag to ensure the correct ownership of craft and further the fight against PWC theft and great imports in the UK.
Yamaha Motor (UK) Ltd showed its latest 2013 PWC models, Aqua X had racing information and race boats, and Jet Bou their merchandise, and information about the Ibiza PWC festival. The exciting day was finished off with a beach side hog-roast.
Xtreme Action are already looking into a venue for the next Jet Bou UK event, while Yamaha Motor UK will be demonstrating the 2013 WaveRunner models at a wide range of events during the summer.
