36th Annual Key West World Championship Powerboat Races Return

     Super Boat International returns with teams from all around the world competing in the national race series are returning to Key West for the 36th Annual Key West World Championship finale.    Things began on Sunday November 6th with the display at the Truman Waterfront and the Parade on Duval Street.  Racing begins on Wednesday, November 9th there are also races on Friday, November 11th and the grand finale on Sunday, November 13th..  All of the races begin at 10:00 am.
     A portion of the 6.5 mile course runs through Key West Harbor where smooth water means the boats can achieve speeds of 140 mph and provide breathtaking display of power and the driver’s skills.
     Super Boat International, the World’s Premier offshore racing series, along with Stihl Power Tools along with JM Associates are proud to announce for the third straight year, 3 hours of programming on NBC Sports to be aired early in 2017.

      There are a number of great viewing areas on the water in the area around Sunset Key and other areas, or from Malory Square on the land.  If you are interested in seeing the map of the course, go to http://superboat.com/race-course-coordinates-key-west/ .   No matter where you view the races from, it is a great show that only comes to Key West once a year.  Don’t miss this event.   See the complete schedule below.
