Hope you had a great Mother’s day. We had a fun and new event come to the lake over the weekend. Professional powerboat races. This year Offshore Powerboat Racing first race of the season was held here. Different types and classes of boats compete in individual races, on the same course, at the same time.
I’d never seen boat races before and didn’t really know what to expect. It’s not everyday that powerboats race in front of your house. It was really fun and exciting to watch.
The boats can reach speeds of 115 mph and 90 mph around turns and were competing for $25,000. Such a fun way to spend the day on the lake and kick off boating season.
