Word from our Race Director Bart Segers.

Hello to my jet-ski family all over the world, first i want to apologize that i was not on the podium with a farewell speech in Nysa, i was to exhausted and mentally tired, sorry for that,

But by this way, i want to thank first of all, all the riders that came from over the world to race on the Eurofinals in Nysa and i hope they had a safe trip back home, i was happy with the number of competitors that showed up, this means that our family still sticks together and that it is still growing.

I also have to thank the whole organisation that worked before and beyond the scenes all the time,
( I was only in it for the last week before the event, but was very pleased that could be one of your race directors ),
i don’t know all their names buth i’ll start by Janusz Jetski-Nysa, Agnieszka Siergiej, Peter De Smet, Deborah Holtzer, Bart Van den Bulcke, Robby Jet, Tomasz Benek Biernaczyk, Nicole Riegler, Sabine De Vulder, Emma, Phil Segers, Célia Fontaine, Annick Bellings, Greet De Paepe,Dawn Dawson, Rob Perrie, Peter Andersson, the whole rescue team from Jens Kammann, the Jetskinword team, Misses Janusz, and also the team from Janusz, with Stephan and friends who helped us putting out the track on monday and tuesday, the security who did a splindid job, and a special thanks to the waterpolice and beach rescue for their support during the weekend. I can guarantee you that not so many people realise the sacrifices that have to be made to make such an event, a good, safe and big thing as it was.

It was an event that was without any big accidents or injuries, where i’m very glad for, because if the riders are not so sportive as they’ve been it could have been worse, so thanks to all riders for the sportsmanship and good behaviour on and off the water.
As always some things can be better and i promise you all, that in the future we’ll do our best to make it better and bigger.

At last, i want to ask to all the organisers from all over the world, to get more together instead of going into competition with each other, by fighting to each other. Our sport will go down and will never be a big sport as we deserve to be.

So i wish you all a good and safe rest of the season and hope to see you all in Nordic Championship in Sweden in August, or in October in Havasu, Take care and see you soon, Bart
