MORE than 50 riders caused a major splash when they took to the water for a jet ski championships.

Competition was fierce as riders spent two days battling it out for points in round two of the JSRA British RYA Jet Ski Championships at Rother Valley Country Park

Racing took place on the larger lake in the country park, which has been a popular venue for jet ski racing meetings since the early 1990s.

But shallow points in the lake mean conditions can get quite choppy and taxing for riders.

Emma Slater, from the RYA, said: “A log jump was introduced for the stand-up jet ski classes, which is always a real crowd-pleaser and looks amazing.

“Racers aim to get the best line over the log jump, getting enough air to clear it but not too much to go awry!”
