2014 Key West Worlds and Poker Run Coverage Overview

sunprintspinOn Friday and Sunday during the 2014 Super Boat International Offshore World Championships in Key West, Fla., last week, speedonthewater.com delivered wrap-up coverage after each race. Our timing target, which we were able to hit, was to have the highlights of each race go live online before the next race began, and given that there were four races per day the challenge was formidable. It was a “first” for online coverage of the SBI Worlds, and though we know there always will be room for improvement we’re pleased with the result. As always, your feedback is appreciated and valued.

Far easier to accomplish but equally important in our view was our “Countdown to Key West” series of online articles, which we hope helped fans gain insight into the top offshore racing teams and their strategies heading into the event.

Special thanks to Pete Boden (the image above is yet another one of his winners) Jeff GerardiJay Nichols and Bob Christie for your photo contributions to this effort. These stories could not have been told without them. And thank you to the coverage sponsors below. (Look for a complete feature on the 2014 SBI Worlds in the upcoming November/December Issue of Speed On The Water digital magazine.)
