Canada has had an excellent showing at the 2018 Jet Boat World Championships in Mexico this week. So has Fort St. John, although heading into the final day of racing, the chances of a Peace Country River Rat representative winning a title are slim.
Both Gord Humphrey and Trapper Wolsey had excellent starts to the championships in the Unlimited and CX classes, respectively. Humphrey led after five legs, but had mechanical issues on the sixth, finishing 10 minutes behind Chad Burns, a fellow Canadian. Humphrey trails Burns by three minutes.
Wolsey was leading the CX class the whole week, but on the eighth leg, his boat sufferred a blown engine, and he as forced to drop out of the competition.
Both North Peace racers have done a great job all week of representing the Peace Country River Rats and put it all on the line for a World Championship.
