The roar of engines will echo across the water this weekend in Miami as the world’s fastest powerboats race deck to deck in the wild Atlantic. Super Boat International, one of the oldest and most prestigious offshore racing organizations, has set up camp in Bicentennial Park in downtown Miami.
Head out today and see the big boats test their engines as they get ready for the 21st Annual Miami Grand Prix on June 5. The first race is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Sunday. There are no bad seats on Miami Beach as the teams compete on a six-mile rectangle course (three miles each way) from 4th to 44th streets and all the way up Collins Avenue.
Super Boat International ran the first powerboat race, a grueling test of men and machine from Miami to Nassau in 1956. The sanctioning body produces races, world kilos and distance records throughout the United States, South America and the Bahamas. To learn more about the Miami event, click here.
