There were a total of 10 individual races originally planned for the 2011 season by the UIM, 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. 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.
