Powerboat races head to Key West in November

American and international powerboat racing teams will compete Nov. 3-10 in Key West Harbor, Fla., during the Key West World Championship.

Boats will race on a 6.2-mile course that features both rough and calm water conditions during the season-ending event, which dubs itself the Indianapolis 500 of the offshore powerboat racing circuit.

The course layout provides spectators with close-up views of the high-speed action. Boats will be within 50 yards of race fans at the Truman Waterfront grandstand area as they roar into the outer harbor, race organizer John Carbonell said.

The event will kick off with a parade of raceboats down Duval Street, beginning at 4 p.m. on Nov. 3.

Three races are scheduled per day on Nov. 6, Nov. 8 and Nov. 10.

The Superboat Unlimited class sees competitors traveling at speeds in excess of 165 mph.

On non-race days, powerboat enthusiasts can view the boats, watch in-water test runs and mingle with racers and crews at the race village on the Truman Waterfront.
