Offshore powerboat series to return to Turanganui-a-Kiwa/Poverty Bay
The offshore powerboat series returns to the waters of Turanganui-a-Kiwa/Poverty Bay on February 8.
Round 2 of the series looks set to attract around 15 boats — about the same as last year.
Superboats will be racing along with craft in the 600-, 400-, 300- and 200-horsepower classes.
“We have reconfigured the course this year and the boats will race closer to the beach,” a spokesman said.
“As usual, they'll race two half-hour-long events.”
The competing craft will parade through the central city, as they did last year, before hitting the water.
