West Cowes is home to the Offshore Powerboat Race
The Cowes Classic Offshore Powerboat Race is a 200-mile long stretch which continues to hold the title of one of powerboating’s toughest challenges here in the UK. Around 20 boats take to the water to get involved in the challenge and, depending on the weather, it’s possible that the winner could complete the course in less than three hours.
The race has now been running for 54 years and was inspired because of the Miami-Nassau Powerboat Race that began in 1956 which was a perfect fit for America’s affluent residents. However, at the London Boat Show in January 1961, it was proposed that a similar race should be staged in England.
The Cowes Classic Offshore Powerboat Race was born.
Powerboat accidents can and do happen
While this event is an excellent opportunity to take part in something fun, interesting and a bit different, partakers and spectators need to be aware that there is a high chance of accidents when driving a boat at high speed.
