August 8, 2013

The Bermuda Powerboat Association released the names of the entrants for this Sunday’s [Aug 11] Around the Island Powerboat Race, which gets underway at 2pm in Ferry Reach.

Crowds always pack the shorelines to watch the annual event, which sees racers navigate around Bermuda at top speed, with last year seeing a fastest time overall of just under 34 minutes.

There will be seventeen boats competing in the six classes, with three in the A-Class, four in the FB-Class, six in the Stock D-Class, two in the D-Class, one in the E-Class and one in the S-Class.

The race starts at Ferry Reach and proceeds through the pylons at Coney Island, along North Shore, around Hog Fish Beacon, through Two Rock Passage and around Whites Island.

From there, boats continue along the Harbour Road shoreline, around Five-Star Island, along to Commissioner’s Point, around Daniels Head and on to South Shore.

  2. A98- all bets are on you guys good luck

  3. Triangle Drifter says:

    This used to be a very popular event with many entries. What happened? Expense? Other boating interests?

    How about a true around the Island for jet skis, with a pit stop at Somerset Long Bay? How about open classes for those who can use their regular day boats? Everything from 13′ Whalers to multi engined CCs.

  15. Top #1 Suspect fan says:

    Yellow batboat for sale!! Needs a legal motor. Horrible pleasure craft. Must sell before Round the Island lmao.

    • S*** Happens says:

      Top #1 suspect Fan
      Let me just help U out a bit i know Damon n his dad very well n i know that bat is not for sale. I don’t know why so many people are worried about their boat. I can tell you this if it was not for Damon the bat boat that is running in the D class would not even be here it would have been another model boat n Damon insisted to the owner to get that boat. I also know that the motor that was on their boat his father had his overseas mechanic rebuild the motor for them.

      Damon also tried to get the suspect owner to buy the same boat he has now but the funds was just not their. Damon then told his dad a year later he was interested in the boat n his dad bought it for him their was no asking anyone to help him pay for the boat or help him pay for the shipping and duty so you should watch how you run your mouth they don’t bother ANYONE. Also if you know anything about motors once again you would not run ya mouth all they had to do is put up their money and protest the motor but none of them are man enough. It is called New techoniligy or Green Motors.

      • Really? says:

        New technology and green Mercury-racing 200ROS but it can’t run in stock-D. The rule book states no fuel injected motors in the stock-D class. Don’t agree with it at all but that’s the rules you are accepting when you sign the dotted line and pay the BPBA fees. Hopefully there can be some changes made in the off-season. I don’t blame the guys at all for not running in mod-D, modified 280hp vs unmodified 200hp. Waste of time/money. Hopefully this gets sorted next year.

    • Widowmaker says:

      Horrible pleasure boat…i agree! Will even add,inside that capsule is hot as ever even with fans that pull in air.

      BUT what i will say is…it’s the BEST QUALITY and one of the newest offshore powerboats built on the island. Tell me of one race boat on this island that is built in FULL CARBON FIBER????

  16. Fed up says:

    #1 Suspect D-187!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Eastern says:


  18. Lady D says:

  19. Widowmaker says:

    Idl who da hell told you my yellow bat boat is for sale! I have a motor…..AND be careful what you ask for! Apparently you don’t know me good enough. LMOA! Widow maker is gone nowhere.

    • Donna says:

  20. Str8 says:
