17 – 20 March, Kinloch, Lake Taupo

The Auckland Jet Ski Riders Association is proud to host this year’s Nationals to be held on the Lakefront Reserve at Kinloch, 20 km Northwest of Taupo.   Kinloch is a small village with beautiful views South, over the lake, toward National Park.  While it has a local store and petrol (95 only) and diesel available at the marina it has few other amenities.  You are advised to bring food and provisions with you or you can shop in Taupo, a 20 minute drive away.  Avgas is available at Taupo Airport, by arrangement.  Food vendors will be on site on race days.

There are no Motels or Hotels in Kinloch but holiday homes are abundant and can be found and booked at holidayhouses.co.nz; holidayhomes.co.nz; or bookabach.co.nz.  Most accommodation is within easy walking distance of the race venue.  For those that prefer hotel and motel options Taupo is an easy 20 minute drive from the race venue.

With only seven weeks until the event competitors have until 10.00pm on Monday 7 March to register (without incurring a late registration fee of $100.00).  At this stage we are offering up to 15 classes.  Should insufficient numbers be received for any class you will be advised of the option to enter another class or receive a refund of your entry.

All classes will be held over at least two days, with the exception of novice classes, with racing beginning on Friday and continuing through to Sunday afternoon.  The course will be set up from 2pm Thursday to allow competitors an afternoon of controlled practice.  This will be strictly controlled by AJSRA officials and managed under race conditions in time slots for both pole skis and runabouts.  Access to the course will only be permitted once all formalities have been completed i.e. DOC clearance, registration and scrutineering.

A limited number of pit tents will be available to hire at ($500.00 each).  They must be booked and paid for with your registration.  These are on a first come, first serve basis.  Security will patrol the venue from Thursday night through to Monday morning.

Strict conditions govern the use of the reserve.

  • All craft and personal gear MUST be officially checked and sprayed for waterweed and bacteria and in order to comply with DOC regulations prior to launching.
  • It is recommended that skis are launched at the Kinloch Marina, in Marina Terrace, 200m from the race venue. Trailers are to be parked in the designated area.  A special rate of $10 per launch and retrieval has been negotiated.
  • The speed limit of 5 knots must be adhered to within the marina
  • Normal Maritime regulations apply to all areas outside our allocated race venue. This applies to distance from shoreline and between craft.
  • Skis must be kept clear of the water’s edge and be launched and recovered in the designated pit area before and after each race using a trolley
  • Recreational riding is forbidden within the designated race course area for the duration of the event.
  • All skis must be fully clear of the water for refueling. This is best done in the pit area.
  • The pit area is smoke-free and alcohol free.
  • Space is limited in the designated race site. Only official marquees and pit tents will be permitted.  Easy-up style canopies may be erected in specified areas only, at the discretion of the AJSRA.  These may not be patrolled by security and should be dismantled daily.
  • No signage is permitted without prior consent of the AJSRA. This includes signage affixed to tents and banners. If you have signage you wish to display outside your pit tent please contact AJSRA and advise advertising details prior to arriving at the event.  Personal sponsorship on your clothing and ski is permitted.
