What an exciting day on the water! The 31st annual Key West World Championship Powerboat Races started today and Fury was out in full force. As usual, our catamaran was positioned as an official turn boat during the race. This means we were literally apart of the racecourse. These amazing boats zoomed around us at speeds up to 100 miles per hour.
We hosted a party like no other on board with a catered breakfast, snacks, lunch, and of course race day mimosas. It’s a thrill every year and our crew especially looks forward to the action. This year, we doubled the fun with a second viewing catamaran. Drifting just offshore Sunset Key, we had unparalleled views of the straightaway.
If you’re reading this thinking, “How did I miss this!?” Don’t fret! There’s still two days of racing left Friday November 11th and the grand finale Sunday November 13th, so get yourself in gear and head to Key West for the action!
