Bracket Classes at Sarasota 2023

Of the sixty-eight boats racing at the P1 Sarasota Grand Prix, twenty-five were racing in the Bracket classes. As those of you who regularly follow the sport will know, the Bracket classes are limited to race no faster than an agreed speed. There are some other variables between the classes, for example: Single hull or catamaran, whether a canopy is required or not, and some classes are limited by engine size. The basic speed brackets are as follows:

Bracket Class 100  115 mph
Bracket Class 200   90 mph
Bracket Class 300   95 mph
Bracket Class 400   85 mph
Bracket Class 500   75 mph
Bracket Class 600   70 mph
Bracket Class 700   60 mph

If the speed bracket is exceeded for even a small period of time, the consequences can be disastrous as the penalties incurred can send the fastest team plummeting down the table. So after each race, the teams have to hand in their GPS to have it checked to ensure they have played by the rules. This is why you see your team racing past the checkered flag, only to have them listed 8th in the official results.
