Default Bermuda....any performance boats?

Takin a cruize with the wife and kids to Bermuda in May. We will be there for 3 days. Is there anybody/place down there that has a performance boating interest that I can visit and BS with while the kids are doing their own thing? What are the best places to go while we're there? Anything I should know about that I shouldnt miss? Would like to make the best of this trip. Thanks in advance!

I shipped a 1992 Celebrity 190 bow rider out there last year. That might be the best option!!!

Some guy over on Screma and Fly restored an old 1980's 23 ft Ghost in Bermuda. I think he now has the hottest water whip in the country...

There are a bunch of smaller SNF type OB's there.
They are raced.
There was a thread on SNF about it.

My wife and I got married in Bermuda. Beautiful place, been there many times but it's been a few years since we've been back.

They used to race offshore boats near the airport every other weekend. The between weekends were motocross races in St Georges. They had an incredible natural terrain mx track.

Be sure to visit the Swizzle Inn, best rum punch and onion rings you'll find anywhere.
