jet skier appeals for more local sponsors
Burnham-On-Sea jet skier who hopes to compete in the world championships
this autumn is seeking the help of local sponsors.
Edrich, 37, is currently racing in the Jet Sport Racing Association
of Great Britain Championships (JSRA) where he is competing in
the IJSBA novice stock class.
Nick used to race but due to family and work commitments had to
stop around ten years ago.
He told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It is hard to get back to the
fitness required for competition at the highest level, and it
is also important to have an understanding wife! Racing takes
up a lot of time and money. If I'm not racing, I am probably training.
Life is a fine balance."
There are six race weekends from April through to September, and
Nick raced last weekend 16-17 April where he took two wins in
his class and is presently leading the championships. He also
finished third in the expert class for the weekend.
Nick hopes to ride in the world finals in October at Lake Havasu,
USA, but does not as yet have the funds to travel there and compete.
has a few sponsors locally, which include AK Autos, Home Farm
Caravan Park, Quick Sign and The Cladding Centre, but further
sponsorship is needed for him to fulfill his potential. Nick
can be contacted on 07738 283569.
