An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until November 14, 2021
High-speed action and high-level competition will keep spectators’ adrenaline pumping at the Race World Offshore Key West World Championships, set for Sunday through Sunday, Nov. 7-14, in the waters surrounding the island city.
The 40th annual world championships feature boats raced by American and international teams, providing a season-ending test of skill for both American Power Boat Association and Union Internationale Motonautique superstars.
Boats roar along a 4.4-mile-per-lap course that includes Key West Harbor, typically facing both rough and calm water conditions, which makes Key West one of the world’s most exciting and competitive venues.
The spectator-friendly course layout means fans can watch from vantage points close to the action, sharing the exhilaration as racers jockey for position.
Championships kick off at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7, with a parade of participating boats along the island’s historic Duval Street.
The action will intensify throughout the week, with teams competing in hard-fought races Wednesday, Nov. 10; Friday, Nov. 12; and Sunday, Nov. 14. Races are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on all three days.
General admission tickets are to be sold on-site at Truman Waterfront Park, with prices starting at $25 per person for a single-day ticket. Admission is free for military members, veterans and children 12 and younger.
