I posted this on the Scream & Fly website (mostly OPC's & Drags ) but they race on lake Stella across town from Lake Crescent.

I'll post here any thing about the venue I hear from the other site.

The race boat kilos will be run by SBI/APBA at another time. That's why this is for non race boats - at least these four classes.

Performance Yacht mono - Gas
Performance Yacht cat - Gas
Performance Yacht mono - Turbine
Performance Yacht cat - Turbine

Performance Yacht is a pleasure boat with a cabin, not a race boat. (Scott is that accurate?)

These four classes will get APBA-UIM records. Any other boat that wants to run through the course can do so during the non sanctioned run what ya brung portion of the event. Even race boats could show up for this day.

If Outerlimits and Fountain show up, they will be running for Performance Yacht Mono - Gas. While AMF racing (our Host) will be running his 51 Outerlimits with turbines for the Performance Yacht Mono - Turbine record.

These are four new classes that APBA established for this event. (Turbines were never used in pleasure boats before recently) So the highest speed at this event will set the record.
Basically, this started as an all turbine event, but it had to be opened up to other classes in order to get the APBA-UIM sanction.

Ron, you will be sent a set of rules. Performance yacht must have what APBA refers to as "Creature comforts" and the rules are a little involved.
I do not believe Reggie or the GTX would comply. It would be great to see them go head to head in a timed Kilo though.
There are a # of reasons this is not affiliated with SBI/APBA offshore, but mainly it is because, in order to attempt a kilo record for offshore, a boat has to have placed in an offshore race and these performance yachts such as AMF are not race boats. It is 51 ft with AC, Generator, full kitchen, queen size bed, fridge, and 42 inch plasma screen TV.
Did I mention we will attempt to go 150- 160mph inthis condo

This event is sanctioned by mother APBA. Do not confuse the two

I've only been to the races on the othere Lake (Stella)across town.

There is a race there in about two weeks (lake Stella) and I will try and jump over to Lake Crescent and see what there is and then post a photo album for all to see the venues.

Crescent City is NOT a Sarasota, Key West, Deerfield etc.as far as emenities. It apperars as though they are however very very interested in holding races there. It may be a good backup for venues such as St Cloud..

Thumbs up Re: Kilo run dates are set

I hope the word gets out to Hydra Powerboats. Some of the yacht cats he has built were tested with amazing results.

I believe they may be down in that area too!
