Live Today On Speedonthewater.com! SBI Key West Worlds Race Day No. 3

The 2015 Super Boat International Offshore World Championships in Key West, Fla., conclude today with races for all classes on the 4.5-mile course. The first race is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Though race officials originally planned for all classes to run extra laps to create greater overall distances, they have decided to stick with the same number of laps today that they stipulated for Wednesday and Friday in light of today’s rough-water conditions. As the day progresses, winds are predicted to kick up from 20- to 25-mph with six- to-nine-foot seas and “very rough nearhshore waters” according to the National Weather Service forecast.
