We are pleased to welcome you to Pensacola Beach at the fifth year of the Pro Watercross National Tour! We hope that you enjoy your stay and make many unforgettable memories. To make sure that everybody has a blast, we have some information and rules that we need you to follow:
NO ALCOHOL OUTSIDE OF THE SAND AREA! “The ordinance restricts open containers in public areas of the commercial district of Pensacola Beach. It is illegal to consume or possess any alcoholic beverages in an open container in the public areas within the commercial district like sidewalks, boardwalks, roads and parking lots. It is permissible to have an open container on the sandy portions of the beach, except the “family area” of Casino Beach just west of the Pensacola Beach Fishing Pier”.
Camping is not permitted in the rider pit area/parking lot. Violators will be ticketed. Please contact Pensacola Beach RV Resort for overnight camping at (850) 932-4670 or a local hotel.
New Traffic Pattern in Beach Parking Lot – There is a new traffic pattern on the beach parking lot. ALL parking lot traffic must enter on the east side of the parking lot, near Sidelines Restaurant. Go through the light on the beach and enter your next right into the parking lot. There is also only one exit which is opposite the Public Safety building.
Unlicensed non-street legal vehicles (four wheelers, buggies) are not allowed on roads. Traffic violations will be enforced. Contact the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office to escort if you are planning on running your PWC in the Intercostal. Any ATV traffic on the beach must remain in the race footprint and must remain under 5 mph.
Leave No Trace Policy - tents, all beach items and trash must be removed from the beach each night. This means that tents are NOT PERMITTED to be left on the beach after racing has finished for the day. All abandoned items left behind after racing will be confiscated.
When entering/exiting the gulf, watercrafts must stay on the east side of the buoys next to the pier. This is for your and the fisherman’s safety and a condition for this event to take place.

Good luck and we hope you enjoy your time on Pensacola Beach!

REGISTER TO RACE & HOTEL INFORMATION
EVENT REGISTRATION: Pro Watercross has partnered with RoomRoster for the 2018-2019 race season. The RoomRoster platform has been custom built to manage registrations, tour & championship communications, official roster uploads and hotel reservations for your travel.
RoomRoster has worked closely with Pro Watercross to provide the best options on amenities, value and location at athlete-friendly hotels. Pro Watercross Events are STAY to PLAY events and hotel should be booked through RoomRoster as part of the event.
What is the advantage to pre-registering? Cost to you as a competitor... You will see that pre-register pricing is $100 for amateur classes, $75 for junior classes and $160 for Pro-Am classes.
Friday onsite registration will add $10 per class and Saturday morning registration will add $20 per class to the above prices.
Why the cost difference? To motivate you to pre-register... but beyond that, in order for Pro Watercross to be able to maintain these beautiful race sites for the tour, we need to be able to provide accurate reporting to our host cities, which includes how many hotels nights are used during the event weekend. RoomRoster.com is working extremely hard to ensure that our competitors are receiving the best room rates available.
If you are concerned about what kind of information is being collected through RoomRoster for your hotel reservations, reservations are made directly through the hotels and RoomRoster keeps track of inventory available and the inventory that has been booked – not your personal information. In turn, this information is used by Pro Watercross to provide an economic impact reports to our host cities. Based on the number of rooms booked for the event, they can estimate the amount of money that is being spent in the area, potentially on local restaurants and other businesses.
What’s next? With technology being part of our day to day lives, RoomRoster has developed an app for both Apple iPhones and Android phones – at this time you would need to register online through the website, and then your information will populate on the app once you have logged-in.
We will use the app for event weekend to pushed information through to the RoomRoster registered competitors... any changes or important site information, including registration, announcements etc.
So, jump on board with Pro Watercross to streamline your weekend!
