Radio Control Model Boat Racing has as its base, rules similar to those used by the "Big Unlimited Boats" you see on television. We race in heats with from 5-8 boats. Two and a half minutes are allowed to start, launch and be ready for the start of the heat. At the expiration of this two and a half minutes (2:30) the race starts. Six laps are run after the start with the winner being the first to finish. Points area awarded to the finishers as follows: 1st - 400, 2nd - 300, 3rd - 225, 4th - 169, 5th - 127, etc. Point deductions are made for cutting buoys. Boats are classed by engine size and hull type. Examples: Engine sizes are up to .21 ci, up to .45 ci, up to .67 ci, up to 1.8 ci. Hulls are classified as Hydro's, Monoplane Hulls & Tunnel Hulls (Outboard). There are several specialty classes run and include: 1/8 Scale (Replicas of the real unlimited boats), Tunnel Hull Outboards, Gas Boats (using "Weedeater" type engines), Sport 40 Boats (similar to scale boats). There are classes for everyone's interests. There are boats which run 35-45 MPH (beginning class) up to over 95 MPH for the really hot classes.
Our 2006 Race is scheduled September 9 & 10, 2006
