Results of the Key West World Championship Offshore Powerboat Races


The Superboat Unlimited class title was won by Sheikh Hassan bin Jabor Al-Thani of Doha Qatar and Steve Curtis of England who piloted Spirit of Qatar to on Sunday at the Key West World Championship offshore powerboat races.

The winds and waves at turns 1 & 2 created a nightmare for the racers trying to keep the boats in the water while providing excitement for the large crowd of spectators in attendance.





Instigator, with Peter Meyer of Port Washington, N.Y., and John Stanch of Westmore, N.J., at the controls, won a Superboat Extreme class championship.

 
 
Maritimo, with Australian racers Ross Willaton and Peter McGrath, won a championship in the Superboat class and Aqua-Mania, piloted by Rick Merola of Brewerton, N.Y., and Gregg Rosen of Wellesley Island, N.Y. captured the title in the Turbine Class.
