As I was driving in to work today and watched one big, beautiful race boat after another being trailered up US 1, I was reminded that the world championship races for Superboat International have come to a close.
My husband, Steven, and I saw the boats on parade on Sunday, November 4th. This was a fun event, hanging out with friends in front of Rick’s Complex on Duval Street with a drink and a camera to capture the sights.
Luckily, there were no serious injuries or deaths in this years races. This comes after three deaths last year.
So here are the big winner for 2012:
Sheikh Hassan bin Jabor Al-Thani and Steve Curtis – Spirit of Qatar – Superboat Unlimited class
Ross Willaton and Peter McGrath – Maritimo – Superboat class
Rick Merola and Gregg Rosen – Aqua-Mania – Turbine class
