Can you help out someone hwo is trying to learn about this. I've been watching the APBA races on TV and love it. I like watching the big water races like Cape Cod last year. Just glad I'm not in the boat with my back...

What is SBI racing?

Are there other offshore events?

East coast, west coast?

Thanks

Cool

Had a nice relaxing weekend in Marathon. The best race to watch was Super V.
Maybe it should be called SVI(Super Vee International) Instead of SBI?

Every time there is a problem Carbonells famous saying is "You don't have to race here if you don't want too". I guess everyone took it to heart this year. He showed his true colors in New York last year. Now apparently he even lost the guy that started all the trouble bu cheating,Doug kelly. Bad moral decision, even worse business decision!! Loose 5 boats to protect 1 cheater!! I don't get it!!

It was relaxing, no pressure to see all the boats. as for the race,
super vee was a good race, a little excitment as Shockwave spun on the first lap battling instigator. but recovered. dont know what happened to vixen though.

Hey Groove...

SBI is another sanctioning body for offshore racing. They also have a schedule for the year. The problem with SBI is that they just dont seem to draw a large number of boats to their venues. There are many reasons which I dont want to discuss on this thread. For more info on SBI go to their web site.

Groove, The are 2 national Programs
APBA and SBI the are also regional clubs that put on races in the Northeast, Midwest, South East and West. Check the milling area for info. there are also links on most of the sites to the regional races.
