Sea-Doo Ultimate Owners Ride VI – THE RIDE – The 2016 group ride will require all participants to ride responsibly and safely and understand the route and follow instructions. With the large number of participants in this year’s ride, it is very important that everybody practice safe riding and keep a minimum distance of 150’ from one another. This ride is approximately 50+ miles round-trip and requires ALL units to be COMPLETELY topped off with fuel for a safe and trouble free round trip ride.
Riding in a group requires that riders respect the space of others (maintain a minimum distance of 150-feet away from all other vessels while at speed) and run in a consistent, straight line. NEVER pass your flight leader. If you are planning to turn right, please look over your right shoulder before initiating the turn and vice-versa for left turns. If you are stopping please signal you are stopping by raising your off-throttle high over your head for those behind you before beginning to slow. ALL RIDERS MUST FOLLOW ALL USCG AND LOCAL BOATING LAWS AT ALL TIMES ON RIDE.
