Jet Around Cayman, presented by Cable and Wireless bMobile, was a smash hit, according to organizers. In its tenth year, the event drew a crowd of over 2,000 people to the Courtyard Marriott Beachside, where 14 riders took to the waves for what turned out to be a harrowing race. A record eight riders failed to finish due to mechanical problems or injury, paving the way for a repeat victory by Jason Smith.

In 2002, when he won Jet Around Cayman,15-year-old Smith was the youngest rider to win the event. He went on to compete on an international level throughout Florida. His current sponsorship contract with Cable and Wireless Broadband is among one of the most prestigious in the sport of jet skiing in the Cayman Islands.

Jason Smith remarked on the race. “It was a tough race. The waters were really rough and the course was just a lot of work. It was definitely not a walk in the park like the Jet Around races before. The training and preparation I put into it paid off. I would have preferred to finish the race with Team Good 2 Go and Team WesTech (both of whom lost several riders to the conditions) but it was a good race. Everybody rode hard. Now, we’re looking forward to next year.”
