The Race requires all boats entering the contest to be a minimum length of 16 feet up to a maximum of 25 feet with any motor configuration (inboard, outboard, IO, Jet). Based on the boat and motor configuration the team will designate a racing division (1 thru 7) per the official rules that govern the race Official Rules . Absolutely NO capsule boats (tunnels or otherwise) will be allowed. The start will be staggered Le Mans with the slowest class of the racing divisions taking off Le Mans style first and then each division starting at their prescribed time thereafter. Safety is of the utmost priority and there are strict rules regarding passing and overtaking boats. Fuel stops consist of a minimum of two (2) – ten (10) minute stops on the trailer in the teams pit designation so, like in NASCAR, fuel stops will play an important role.
