Got a need for speed? We're talking about boats equipped with F-16 jet canopies and 6,000-hoursepower engines. Boats that achieve racing speeds of up to 180 mph in the Gulf of Mexico. Let's just say that these boats go fast.
Races start from Pier 60 in Clearwater Beach, so the shoreline and beachfront hotels make great vantage points. This three-day event is packed with activity beyond racing. Don’t miss the accompanying seafood festival and Baystar race village in nearby Coachman Park, where you can take photos with the boats and teams, enjoy a block party, dine on fabulous seafood and listen to live entertainment.
The event runs Sept. 28-30, 2012. Purchase a VIP package for $100 for adults and $25 for kids.
