Season calendar[edit]

There were a total of 10 individual races originally planned for the 2011 season by the UIM,[1] with events in St Petersburg, Nanyang and Haikou alongside the seven that ultimately took place. These included a brand new race in Kiev which was announced on 25 January, bringing F1 powerboats to Ukraine for the first time.[4] However on 12 April it was announced that the planned race in St Petersburg was to be rescheduled for 2012, with the Kazan race moved back a week to compensate for the gap in the schedule.[5]
