The Challenge of Racing the Sun, part of the Sea-Doo Life

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Our time is valuable and limited and our free time is more of a premium. When we look to spend a fun filled day on the water we want to get the most out of it. We want to make every minute count. The challenge is how do we live the most minutes living the Sea-Doo life?

The sun is only up for so long in a day. To make the most of your day on a Sea-Doo watercraft some try to ride from sunrise to sunset, but how many actually accomplish that?

This is a day you are guaranteed to make the most of. Let’s take this a step farther. Let’s make it more interesting. What if you watched the sun come up over the horizon of the water and said, “Go” to your group of ride friends and rode all day racing the sun to sunset and watched the big ball of light sink into another horizon of the water?

This was the concept behind the latest Sea-Doo video challenge Racing the Sun.

One of the more interesting navigational treks in North America is the Okeechobee waterway that cuts through the lower half of Florida. This waterway offers a short cut for both pleasure and small commercial vessels bypassing a long trip around the southern peninsula and to make passage from Florida’s East coast at the city of Stuart, to the peninsula’s West coast at Fort Myers Beach. This waterway is a manmade passage managed by the Army Corp of Engineers and stretches more than 160 miles from east coast to west coast with the 30-mile wide Lake Okeechobee providing the open water middle point.

Most of the waterway consists of dredged canals measuring 100-150 meters wide and includes five locks, to control the water levels of the Okeechobee, which helps provide irrigation for millions of acres of sugarcane and citrus crops. The sights along the way are interesting to say the least as hundreds of species of wildlife can be seen as well as domesticated horses and cattle sipping at the water’s edge. An equally diverse array of vessels and people can be encountered during a trip on the waterway.

The ride lends itself to an incredible Sea-Doo experience as the protected waters make it a trip nearly any Sea-Doo watercraft owner can do. We challenged some accomplished riders to make the trek and videoed the adventure. To ensure the odds of completing the challenge were in our favor, all three rode new 2016 300 horsepower Sea-Doo watercraft models including X-TEAM racer Erminio Iantosca (@erminioiantosca) on a RXP-X 300, Cody Hawkins (@codyhawkins) on a RXT-X 300 and Ashley Sponaugle (@ashleysponaugle) on a GTX Limited 300.

The project had to be shot in one day as thee are no retakes with a sunrise and sunset. This was a challenging project and very aggressive planning to capture such a ride on video and tell the full story. The crew was minimal to say the least. The crew consisted of three riders, one boat driver, one cameraman and two truck drivers to chase along with the trailers, plus two Facebook fans in Ft. Myers we would meet up with at sunset. Planned a month in advance, weather was a major concern and when the day came we were gifted with near perfect weather, a tad windy, but no rain and mostly sunny skies.

The day of the crew woke up at 4:30 and launched the units prior to sunrise to get over to the south end of Hutchinson Island and the Stuart Inlet. Exactly 6:13am the sun broke the horizon and the clock started. Thee riders aboard three 300 horsepower watercraft set for a 14-plus hour trek. We knew we would encounter many slow speed zones and waiting at locks and this was built into the plan. What wasn’t built into the plan was the photoboat’s steering fading away at about the 20-mile mark.

With 85% of the trip in front of us, right around the point where we pass several cows next to the waterway, the steering gear box faltered and we had virtually no steering to the left. With veteran adventure boaters the team continued using what little steering they had and using so leaning along the way. Luckily the wind was from the rear and the there were little sharp turns involved in the journey allowing the chase/photoboat to keep up with the 300 hp watercraft.

The three new Sea-Doo models ran flawlessly and covered plenty of distance and other than the diverse scenery along the way the only drama was keeping the boat on course. The adventure was just that as our riders successfully made it to Sanibel Island where they met up with local Facebook fans Julio Paulo who owns a SPARK model and Raegan Wesch a proud owner of a Sea-Doo GTX 155. Over three hours of video was captured over the nearly 15-hour journey and it was all cut into a 2:00 video that you may have seen on the Sea-Doo Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube channels. We also produced a longer version that shows a little more of the adventure and some of the elements that make the Sea-Doo life the most fun you can have on the water.

Enjoy and have a great summer.

Sea-Doo X-TEAM watercraft racer Dustin Farthing is dedicating his final season of racing to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta by donating all of his 2016 prize and contingency money to the Atlanta based non-profit.

Farthing is a 17X national and world champion, now residing in Marietta, GA and part owner of six BRP dealerships under the Mountain Motorsports brand and father of two healthy sons. He is closing out an illustrious 23-year watercraft-racing career by giving back to the sport that has provided him the majority of his personal and professional success. In his final season he has chosen to race for BRP Inc.

“This sport has given me so much and I want to leave the sport by doing something special for the kids of Atlanta and their families whom are facing incredible health challenges. ” exclaims Farthing. “My wife, whom I met at a race 20-plus years ago, and two sons are the most important part of my life and I feel blessed every day for our health and am challenging myself to race for families struggling to take care of their children and winning on my Sea-Doo watercraft.”

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is a not-for-profit organization that provides specialized care to children from all walks of life. They rely on donations to provide the best possible care to young patients and their families now and in the future.

“This sport has given me every opportunity to have an incredible life and now it’s my opportunity to give back,” said Farthing. I am going to have fun in my final year racing on a Sea-Doo watercraft and give back in the most positive manner possible.

Farthing will be competing in the Pro Watercross Tour, that begins this weekend in Panama City, Florida as well as the Florida based P1 AquaX series and IJSBA World Finals event in October taking place in Lake Havasu City, AZ.

  • FARTHING HEADLINES DEEP AND TALENTED ROSTER OF PRO RACERS
  • 300HP SEA-DOO RXP-X AND RXT-X MODELS FOCUS OF 2016 RACING SEASON
  • SEA-DOO TO ACTIVATE MULTIPLE 2016 RACE SUPPORT PROGRAMS

Valcourt, QC, CANADA– April 7, 2016 – BRP is taking watercraft racing to the next level in 2016 with the Sea-Doo X-TEAM race programs and the return of an all-star roster of Pro watercraft racers led by the winningest runabout racer of all time, Dustin Farthing.

The introduction of the new Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 and RXT-X 300 watercraft models has performance fans excited for the start of the 2016 riding season, and BRP is supporting the racing community with multiple programs. The 2016 Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty program provides all Sea-Doo riders competing in the various disciplines of watercraft racing in North America the opportunity to earn contingency money throughout the season. BRP is also ensuring there are more competition-focused events through the Sea-Doo Promoter support program, sponsoring race events across North America.

BRP will sponsor premier racing events including the P1 AquaX Series, Pro Watercross Tour, IJSBA World Finals and others and will see a stacked team of veteran Pro racers representing the Sea-Doo X-TEAM in 2016. These racers include Claude Clayton, Anya Colley, Paul Green, Erminio Iantosca, Eric Lagopoulos, Tim Neff, Anthony Radetic, Troy Snyder, Blaine Spooner and the return of champion Dustin Farthing. Farthing is a 17X National and World Champion and has chosen to compete on a Monster Energy/Mountain Motorsports backed Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 for 2016.

farthing“I’m very excited to return to racing and competing on a new Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 watercraft,” said Farthing. “I raced aboard Sea-Doo watercraft in 1997 & 1998, and won two National and one World Championship. With the help of Monster Energy and BRP, the idea of coming back to racing after two-years of focusing my energy on my six BRP dealerships is now a reality. I’m looking forward to return to racing for this great manufacturer and the X-TEAM to earn championships in 2016.”

Farthing and all Sea-Doo watercraft riders will be eligible for Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty. The Sea-Doo X-TEAM contingency is essentially an, “open-sponsorship” that excludes no one, except those competing on other brands. In addition to the glory that comes with winning on Sea-Doo watercraft, comes the opportunity for extra prize money. In addition, the Sea-Doo X-TEAM Promoter support program provides event producers sponsorship funds to help them produce more, high-quality events. BRP works with promoters to ensure Sea-Doo performance enthusiasts have a place to ride and compete in an organized manner, providing another fun aspect of owning a Sea-Doo watercraft.

“BRP launched the next level of performance watercraft in 2016 and Sea-Doo X-TEAM fans around the world are anxious to see them compete,” says Tim McKercher, of Sea-Doo watercraft competition management. “BRP is excited to cheer on all Sea-Doo watercraft racers and to see Dustin Farthing back on Sea-Doo watercraft, joining a team that will show the world how the new RXP-X 300 model takes performance riding to the next level.

BRP does more for the sport of watercraft racing than any other company. For 2016, Sea-Doo X-TEAM program support begins at the opening event of the P1 AquaX series, taking place April 9, 2016 in Tavares, Florida.
