PORT ANGELES – Watercross racing could return this year, bringing with it the longest personal watercraft endurance race in the Pacific Northwest.

The Peninsula Water Sports Association on Monday extended an invitation to watercross racers to return to Port Angeles Harbor after a four-year hiatus.

“We’re offering to add personal watercraft to Strait Thunder (hydroplane races),” association President Mary Buck said Monday after the association board voted unanimously in favor of the proposal.

“It’s an exciting event, and we have the perfect venue here.”

Watercross racing is similar to motocross – the course includes numerous hairpin turns, jumps and high-speed straight-aways – but competitors ride either sit-down or stand-up personal watercraft.
