P1 Offshore %% Teams
Pos # Team Pts

Our fleet of powerboats and jet skis are heading to Sarasota on June 26th - 27th for another round of the 2021 P1 Offshore and AquaX Championships. Around 90 competitors are expected for two days of world-class marine motorsport action.

It is the 36th annual Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix, which is part of the newly-renamed Suncoast Summer Fest. The weekend of 26-27 June will see a double bill of powerboat and personal watercraft racing along Lido Beach.

Located on Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast, Sarasota County provides the quintessential white-sand beach getaway, perfect for absorbing the noise, power and excitement of a double-bill of powerboat and personal watercraft racing.

Dubbed the "Home of the American Circus," Sarasota County served as the headquarters for the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus for 75 years, and fans can experience its special culture first-hand by following the circus trail or catching a performance by one of two local circus companies.
After the pounding Atlantic swell of Cocoa Beach, P1 Offshore now moves to the more tranquil, shallower waters of the Gulf of Mexico. However, if you are expecting a less exciting race, think again...

Sarasota is the second longest-running US powerboat race, after the Key West Championship. Compared to Cocoa Beach, Sarasota is a more technical course. Cocoa Beach is long and narrow, running up and down the beach, with two 180 degree turns. Sarasota has varying degrees of right turns and a leftward dog-leg on the backward stretch. Although the water at Sarasota looks calmer, there are often holes, or variations on the seabed, which create voids on the surface. These can cause unexpected flights or hits, so are difficult for drivers to anticipate.

The water will suit the Class 1 and Super Cat for top speeds. The light chop will be less likely to upset the bigger hulls and will be enough to keep traction high with the hull skimming the surface.

Super Stock has the most entries among the bigger boats and is one of the most competitive offshore classes for this reason. The water conditions are estimated to be 1-3ft with a slight chop on the surface. This will suit the Super Stock boats and keep their catamaran hulls free and loose for higher speeds. Those sneaky holes in the seabed will surely give the Super Stock crews some air time, as the boat is trimmed for one sea condition, then the bottom falls out from under them.

Mod V and Stock V will also be highly competitive. Sarasota will definitely be a driver's race for these boats if the water remains relatively calm. The varied turns in calm waters can cause "chine walking" with their V hulls. "OK, so what is chine walking?" Chine walking is caused when a high-performance V-Hull starts to lift out of the water. In certain circumstances, as speed increases, the actual part of the hull in contact with the water becomes reduced, and the boat starts to rock from one side to another as it tries to balance the remaining hull in contact with the water. This gives the drivers more work to do. Boat set-up and trim also play an important part.

Things to do

Don't miss the Block Party on Friday night. It gives you the chance to get up close with the boats and teams on Main Street. The trailers are designed to show the boats to their full extent. As an example, the Miss GEICO boat is 47 feet long, weighs over 5/12 tons and can reach speeds of over 170mph!

On Saturday and Sunday, you can visit the pits in the car park of the Van Wezel at 777 N Tamiami Trail. There, you are encouraged to look around and see the teams preparing their boats and "craning-in" to the water from the backs of their very impressive trucks. There is a Fan Zone area at the pits area where you can enjoy food, drink, or purchase merchandise. Across the inlet from the Van Wezel car park is Centennial Park, where one of the cranes will be putting boats in the water at the hot/wet Pits - 1059 N Tamiami so there will be plenty to see and a great location for photographers.

Lido Beach is the best place to watch the racing. On Saturday you can watch the P1 AquaX jet skiers warming up and then their first two races. Between 11 am and 3 pm, the powerboats will be testing their boats on the course so there will be plenty to see. There is another Fan Zone area set up in the car park at 400 Benjamin Franklin Dr. which is the same location as VIP Hospitality Tent. Here you can also enjoy food, drink, or purchase merchandise.

There is VIP Hospitality on offer on Lido Beach if you want to make the event even more special, with an open bar and lunch included. Under 12s go free and if you have to keep an eye on them, relax as there are 4 wide-screen TVs to follow the action. If you have purchased VIP Hospitality tickets, there will be a table at registration in the pits on Friday where you can collect your tickets earlier, if you would like to.

In the links below are two Google Streetview links to show you the view from Lido Beach and the Van Wezel Pits. (The Pits will be a lot busier on the 26th!)
