We get the speed limit raised to 80mph on Lake Charlevoix and once your 1 mile off shore in Lake Michigan there is no limit. We also get the noise limit raised so you guys with dry pipes can have fun.

I know nothing about these RC boats, so please educate me.

We will organize a competition, It won't cost anything to enter and the winner will get a trophy and a case of his/her favorite beer.
What would be the best way to race these to be fare? Drag Race? Oval? Or a figured coarse to show the captains skill. Should we run multiple boats or 1 boat at a time and just time it?
Lets here your opinions.
