Cayman has another world champion jet ski racer.
The Cayman Islands can be proud to boast another world title holder as Roshad Goff, the 2012 Cayman Islands Watercraft Association Expert Class Champion, won first overall in the Amateur stock class at the International Jet Sport Boating Association World Finals in Lake Havasu, Arizona.
Goff, who hails from West Bay, also placed fourth in the Pro Stock division. He was one of a crew of watercraft riders who participated and returned home this week.
Team Cayman was very successful, with each rider qualifying and placing amongst the top ten in each of their respective classes. Last year’s world champion Jordan ‘JJ’ McLean rode in two classes, Expert Limited and Pro-Am Limited, along with watercraft association national amateur champion Javier Medina (who also rode in the Novice Limited category).
Both McLean and Medina placed in the top 10 in the world. However, they were both unfortunate to have some mechanical failures and errors with their crafts, which cost them podium finishes at this year’s meets.
Gary ‘GJ’ Whittaker, the 2012 Jet Around Cayman winner and watercraft association’s second place winner in the expert class of the 2012 national championship series, finished with an impressive fourth place spot in the Expert Limited division.
Vanjae ‘VJ’ Ramgeet, the second place rider in the novice class of the watercraft association’s 2012 national championship series, rode in two classes with very impressive performances in both classes. Ramgeet finished fifth in the Novice Stock class and seventh in the Amateur Stock class in Arizona.
We, Team Good2Go would like to welcome ‘Team Cayman Racing’ back home. We congratulate and thank them on their very impressive performances. They all have been honourable ambassadors for our beloved Cayman Islands and role models for the youth of this country.
