The roar of racing engines can be heard once a year in the charming coastal Florida town of Clearwater. But Florida’s Best Beach (via a USA Today poll) doesn’t play host to any NASCAR race, but rather the roar of the Super Boat National Championships.
From VIP viewing parties to wading in the water at the beach, to securing spots on Pier 60 (place I took this photo), to being on a boat out on the Gulf of Mexico, the event is a lovely way to spend a September Sunday afternoon (the event is held the last weekend in September and the past 5 have been in Clearwater, FL)
It’s a super good time, and with boats that can top 180mph… It’s super-fast too.
Stay super, Craig
Special thanks for Clearwater, FL and Imagine Travels for the invite to attend. And for those interested, the Super Boat World Championships will be held in Key West in November.
