P1 AquaX Pushes Bahamas World Championship to Fall 2022


Despite rapid and surmounting evidence that the cornavirus’ threat to the general public’s health is quickly ebbing, concerns of an influx of foreign carriers has caused management of the Atlantis Paradise Island resort to postpone the Bahamas World Championships until Fall of 2022.

This of course, comes at considerable cost and disappointment to racers and event coordinators. The announcement came across The Watercraft Journal’s desk earlier this weekend; where Roy Mantle of Powerboat P1 wrote:

Powerboat P1 has announced that this year’s P1 AquaX Bahamas World Championship will move to Fall 2022 due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19.

The personal watercraft racing event was scheduled for November at the Atlantis Paradise Island resort in the Bahamas and P1 CEO Azam Rangoonwala said, “Ending our 2019 season at Atlantis Paradise Island was a wonderful experience so this is very disappointing for everyone involved. The World Championship features an elite field of international riders and a key factor in the decision was the restrictions on travel that are still in place in many countries.”

“We are working with P1 AquaX to reschedule the event for 2022 and look forward to again welcoming the racers and fans for an exciting climax to the race season,” added Audrey Oswell, President and Managing Director, Atlantis Paradise Island.

A further announcement will be made next month.
