2017 Bradenton Area River Regatta

Don’t miss it! February 4th at 10am, 11am & 2pm.


Often billed as NASCAR® on water, powerboat racing roars as one of the most explosive events on water. Sporting jet-engine speed and “no brake, non-shiftable, forward only” gears, the race at Regatta features the SST/120 F-2 class of boats capable of turning on a dime and dazzling spectators with their no fear agility and skill. Once the start gun sounds, drivers rocket from the dock, climbing from 0–100/mph in less than four seconds. More impressive — they’ll reach four-plus G’s in the course turns barely slowing down, with the potential to top out at a dizzying 125+/mph on straightaways.

Bradenton-Palmetto provides the perfect backdrop for these sea-battling beasts as they circle the Manatee River in one heart-pounding, catch-me-if-you-can chase to the finish. Drivers from around the country, including Bradenton’s own, Jeff Reno, will once again descend on one of the most scenic venues on the circuit to engage, entertain and enthrall the crowds.
