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. (Bombardier Recreational Products), the industries leading manufacturer, aboard a new Monster Energy backed Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 watercraft and aims to finish in the lead pack collecting prize money he will then donate to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

“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. Farthing will donate 100% of the prize money he earns during the 2016 watercraft racing season plus all racing contingency funds from the Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty program that makes over $25,000 of funds available to winning Sea-Doo watercraft riders. *

“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.

  • 300HP SEA-DOO RXP-X AND RXT-X MODELS FOCUS OF 2016 RACING SEASON

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.

SEA-DOO SPARK REDEFINES ACCESSIBILITY AS THE INDUSTRY’S MOST AFFORDABLE AND FUN WATERCRAFT

Tags

DSC01810

The Sea-Doo SPARK: Packing a whole lot of family fun into a price you’ll love.

BRP re-ignited the marine industry with the introduction of the Sea-Doo SPARK, the most accessible and affordable watercraft on the market.

The Sea-Doo SPARK generated 20% industry growth since its introduction and reinforced  Sea-Doo’s number one position. The fun, nimble Sea-Doo SPARK makes the dream of owning a watercraft a reality today.

In 2016, the Sea-Doo SPARK is easy to customize in 5 steps with six new graphic kits5 total colors to choose from and the ability to equip technologies that come standard with the iBR and Convenience Package Plus. The experience of owning the Sea-Doo SPARK puts it in a class of its own with a new handlegrip with palm rests available on all Sea-Doo SPARK models that increase rider control and decrease arm fatigue.

Riders create their SPARK in 5 simple steps

 

TW 3 Sparks Red Green Blue Dawn_8313_16 12 MAR 2016

More fun with seating up to three passengers.

STEP 1: SELECT THE NUMBER OF PASSENGERS

  • Sea-Doo SPARK 2up: Provides a capacity for two riders with a maximum weight of 350 lbs (159 kg).
  • Sea-Doo SPARK 3up: Ideal for 2 adults and a child or teenager with a maximum capacity of 450 lbs (205 kg). It has an elongated seat and platform extension to provide more buoyancy and stability and towing capabilities.

 STEP 2: PICK YOUR ENGINE

  • Rotax 900 ACE: Using just 1.94 gallons (7.34 L) of fuel per hour, this engine generates entry-level power, and is only available on the Sea-Doo SPARK 2up model.
  • Rotax 900 HO ACE: Using only up to 2.4 gallons (9 L) per hour, this high-output engine has quicker acceleration and a higher top speed. It is available on both 2up and 3up models.

STEP 3: ADD iBR AND CONVENIENCE PACKAGE PLUS4

The Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft is also available with the exclusive Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) system that provides a level of control and peace of mind that has become associated with modern Sea-Doo watercraft. The Sea-Doo iBR system is the first and only braking system recognized by the USCG (U.S. Coast Guard) for contributing to recreational boating safety since 2009. The optional Sea-Doo SPARK iBR system available on 90hp units is intuitive and specifically designed to offer maximum braking efficiency and low speed control with neutral starting.

In 2016, a Sea-Doo SPARK equipped with iBR will come standard with Sea-Doo’s Convenience Package Plus that includes popular optional items for Sea-Doo watercraft: a Front Storage Bin Kit, a Sea-Doo Step for easy re-boarding and the Digitally Encoded Security System with radio frequency technology (RF D.E.S.S.) for greater security from theft and unauthorized use.

A rainbow of style-filled colors to choose from. SPARK comes in  (from left to right) Vanilla, Blueberry, Chili Pepper, Pineapple, and Key Lime.

 STEP 4: PICK YOUR COLOR

Riders can choose from exciting and vibrant Blueberry, Key Lime, Chili Pepper, Pineapple or Vanilla colorations.

 

IG Sea-Doo MY16 PAC_Rec Lite_A0208_AC-2 08 MAR 2016

Express your personality by customizing your SPARK with an Attitude Graphic Kit or truly be one-of-a-kind and design your own SPARK wrap.

STEP 5: PERSONALIZE IT

Consumers can decide to select one of our dozens of Attitude Graphic Kits or create one of their own to make their Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft unique to them. A customization offered only by Sea-Doo allows consumers to choose fully integrated accessories including:

  • Tow Pro – Three accessories in one; a tow pylon, spotter handle and rack.
  • Chill Shade – Provides coverage up to speeds of 56 km/h (35 mph) and on land.
  • Sea-Doo Step – Convenient for reboarding and installs on the transom of the watercraft.
  • Front Storage Bin Kit – Maximizes storage for essentials.
  • RF D.E.S.S. Key – Digitally Encoded Security System programmed with a unique code.
  • Manual Reverse Kit – Provides added maneuverability for watercraft without iBR.
  • Side Protectors – Protects the Sea-Doo SPARK from small impacts and wear.
  • Snap-In Fenders – Offer extra protection when docking and can be quickly attached.
  • Sea-Doo SPARK Move II trailer – Designed to carry two Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft.
  • Speed Ties – Retractable dock lines at the helm and transom that store out of sight.

The compact Sea-Doo SPARK is the lightest watercraft on the market ideal for short, playful rides on smaller bodies of water and holds its own under rougher conditions for more challenging, thrilling rides. The minimalist Exoskel architecture gives the Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft an open-air upper deck appearance with a framework that consists of two forward swept “arms” securing the handlebar and rider connection. By keeping only the essential structural portions of the watercraft in the rider control area, strength and durability are maintained. The Exoskel reduces weight while creating a unique modern design that defines the playful maneuverability of the Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft and a power-to-weight ratio close to 50% better than the closest competitive model. Its compact design and lightweight construction makes it easy to own, easy to tow, and simple to store.

The innovation of the Sea-Doo SPARK goes beyond the architectural design and extends into the advanced materials and processes used to create this watercraft. Polytec, an exclusive recipe of polypropylene and long glass fibers designed specifically for watercraft hull and deck applications, is used to make up the Sea-Doo SPARK Exoskel. This material is a recyclable, low density, high-impact resistant, lightweight composite material. Polytec keeps the overall weight of the watercraft low without compromising strength and durability.

Powered by the robust Rotax 900 ACE engine, the Sea-Doo SPARK costs more than 30% less than the closest model  and is the most fuel-efficient watercraft in the industry. It is economical to operate and maintain, making Sea-Doo watercraft ownership available to more people than ever before. Designed specifically for delivering years of reliable fun, the ROTAX 900 ACE is an in-line three-cylinder 4-stroke power plant featuring iTC (Intelligent Throttle Control) system and CLCS (Closed-Loop Cooling System). The Rotax 900 HO ACE adds power, Sport mode and has a top speed close to 50 mph (80 km/h).

The Sea-Doo SPARK is one of the industry’s most decorated watercraft of all time winning the NMMA Innovation Award, Red Dot Design Award, Edison Silver Award, Boating Industry Magazine’s best new product, the Good Design Award in Japan and Australia, and the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award.

 Riders can personalize everything according to their necessities, personality, lifestyle and budget from technology features to color and accessories. Most of all, the Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft is compact, lightweight and an absolute blast to ride. From recreational riding, to performance, to luxury or tow sports, BRP has a Sea-Doo model specially designed for every type of rider. The full line-up of Sea-Doo watercraft provide avant-garde styling, precise, superior handling and great value – delivering many years of fun for the best on-water experience your family can dream of.

Off the Race Course: AquaX Champion Eric Lagopoulos

When championship Sea-Doo racer Eric Lagopoulos isn’t in hot pursuit of his next win and triumphant appearance on the winner’s podium, you can find him living the Sea-Doo life on the west coast of Florida where he spends his days running his popular waterfront restaurant “The WaterfrontToo” and enjoying his Sea-Doo in a more relaxed and leisurely fashion.

Eric Lagopoulos aboard the #361 Sea-Doo GTR 215

Onboard: Your fans know you well from your multiple wins and your racing fame including your most recent trip to the winner’s podium at the 2015 AquaX, but what would surprise them to learn about you?

Eric: At a young age I had the opportunity to get involved in the family restaurant business and I jumped on it! Today, I now own “The WaterfrontToo” Grille & Steakhouse, a spin-off of the original “Waterfront” restaurant my family established in Sarasota. It’s a 250-seat seafood and steakhouse in Nokomis. I’m proud of what we have accomplished, especially being recognized for our signature hand-cut steaks and fresh fish as well as for our slow-cooked prime rib which is the best in town! We also cater to water enthusiasts – they can access the restaurant by water and pull up and dock for an evening of dining fun waterside.

Onboard: When not in the heat of racing season, what’s a typical day for you like?

Eric:  My typical day would be to wake-up and either work-out or go riding.  I try to ride three to five days a week to stay in shape for the grueling Aqua Cross season – which is fast approaching!  After prepping for competition on my Sea-Doo – so I can continue to win titles, I then head over to the restaurant. Since it is only open for dinner, it provides me with tremendous schedule flexibility. This allows me to fit my race training schedule around owning and operating my restaurant.

Eric and Sea-Doo: Inseparable even on days off! (Photo Credit: Eric Lagopoulos Facebook)

Onboard: Your Sea-Doo is a major component of your life on and off the race circuit. How do you like to spend your “off” days?

Eric:  My perfect “non-racing” day on my Sea-Doo would be going to a place I’ve ridden to my entire life, a place called Bayside. It’s on the northern end of Longboat Key, and it is one of my favorite spots because it makes for easy access to the Gulf of Mexico. On a perfect day, there would be three to five-foot surf – which offers me and my buddies awesome launches all day long! And when not on my Sea-Doo, you can find me enjoying other water sports including wake boarding and surfing.

2015 AquaX Champion, Eric Lagopoulos

Onboard: Thank you for taking us through a day in your Sea-Doo life, now circling back to racing – can you share with us what’s new for the 361 team in 2016?

Eric:  The 361 team will have a cool new title sponsor for 2016, Von Vape! I’m really excited to partner with this company, they are local and have a long history of boat racing in the family! Von Vape will be joined by Sea-Doo, Riva, Hydroturf, Fly, and Jetpilot in keeping me on top of the podium!

BRP thanks Eric Lagopoulos for his time and dedication to the pursuit of PWC racing glory aboard Sea-Doo. You can follow Eric on his Facebook page.

SEA-DOO TAKES POWER, CONTROL AND COMFORT TO THE NEXT LEVEL IN THE LUXURY WATERCRAFT SEGMENT

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

BRP takes luxury riding to the next level with the introduction of the Sea-Doo GTX Limited 300. The combination of increased power and efficiency of the new 300-hp Rotax 1630 ACE engine with the advanced ergonomics of the Ergolock seat deliver a confidence inspiring ride allowing you to push your limits even further. This year all GTX models receive the new Ergolock seat with stepped design and the second generation of the intuitive Intelligent Brake & Reverse (iBR) system for an added level of control adding more value to the most full-featured luxury models in the watercraft industry.

ROTAX 1630 ACE Marine engine - Static4

ROTAX 1630 ACE Marine Engine

The new Rotax 1630 ACE engine is the most powerful engine ever produced by Rotax with a 15% power increase creating 300 hp, providing better acceleration and more mid-range power1. With increased intake air boost, improved cooling system and new ignition timing for the larger fuel injectors, the new Sea-Doo GTX Limited 300 elevates performance in the luxury segment.

In addition to the development of the new Rotax 1630 ACE engine, BRP applies the latest ergonomic science to perfect the rider position with the new Ergolock seat with stepped design on all GTX models in 2016. The Ergolock seat provides all riders a full body connection with the watercraft and a more natural position for more comfortable touring and confident cornering. The Ergolock seat design is sculpted to the riders’ bodies with a narrower section between the knees slightly widening towards the rear. The stepped-seating implements rising seating levels for better passenger vision with added lumbar cushioning providing added support for up to three riders that hold them in place better in all conditions.

The third major improvement for 2016 is all Sea-Doo GTX models will be equipped with the new second-generation iBR that improves on the intuitive iBR braking system with a more responsive activation and faster braking. The Sea-Doo iBR system introduced in 2009 is the first and only braking system recognized by the United States Coast Guard for contributing to recreational boating safety and stops the Sea-Doo watercraft close to 48.75 m (160-feet)2 sooner than the same watercraft not using a braking system. The new iBR system adds to the rider centric design approach providing unmatched control at speed and during tight quarter manoeuvring.

2016 Sea-Doo GTX Limited 300 - DETAILS - Watertight Front Storage copyThe addition of the new Ergolock seat design delivers the benefit of additional wet storage under Sea-Doo’s exclusive removable watertight storage bin for over three times more total storage capacity than the previous generation with 162 liters (42.8 US gallons) and a new larger glove box.

All GTX Models feature the latest in programmable power delivery through the exclusive Sea-Doo Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) including Touring, Sport, and ECO modes, Cruise Control and Slow mode. The GTX segment rides on the exclusive S3 hull (Stepped, Stable, Strong) that provides better wave penetration for a more stable ride and also offers the industry’s only suspension options on select models for the most comfortable ride available.
