    It is also interesting that there are clauses for the City to cancel the five year contract at almost any time.

    I wonder what they will do when some statements made are found to be untrue?

    That's funny sbi doesn't even know what ADA stands for let alone implement it.

    I was hoping kw would go to OPA but bubba politics are still very much alive in kw

    if sbi were still run by JC they would have gotten it again.

    but since its not looks like RWO???

    Reading all of the proposals sure portrays a different story than the facts.

    Politics.....

    Make sure to read #9, the points awarded......

    Yep, but I certainly have apprehensions about RWO. They have not kept one commitment they made since their existence, not one.

    Agreed .But C,mon we all know opa and rwo will combine,
    The whole issue was to get the two old ladies and those two redneck truckdrivers out of control of keywest and clearwater.

    Now that has happened ,
    Larry cannot pull the racers left together.
    But there are members in rwo who have strong ties with opa.
    It will happen.
    RWO and OPa will mesh at some point this summer

    I doubt that. RWO, P1, and OPA had a written commitment to put the Key West World's on jointly. Then, after all of the work they did, RWO decided they wanted to be in charge and dropped OPA and P1 from the application.

    I would be surprised if P1 and OPA forgot that....

    Of course, RWO has already broken parts of the program they presented to get Key West. Took less than a week.

    As the prop turns.

    Now SBI says it has the permits to run Key West, not Race World Offshore. ????

    And the Race World Offshore site appears to be down currently?

    Super Boat's National Championship Moves to Key West

    The 11th Annual Clearwater Super Boat National Championship™ is moving to Key West in November. SuperBoat International will host their National Championship in Key West this year with national championship-determining races taking place November 6th and 8th. The event will run concurrently with the KeyWest World Championship™ taking place November 6th, 8th &10th.

    SuperBoat International (SBI) is pleased to announce that the Super Boat National Championship will take place in Key West during the 39th Annual Key West World Champion Race. The move from Clearwater to Key West comes after Super Boat International recently canceled their agreement with the city of Clearwater after a ten-year run.

    “Our decade of hosting our national championship race in the city of Clearwater has now come to an end, but we are thrilled to be bringing the magic and excitement of this race to our home shores of Key West and starting a new chapter,” says John Carbonell, president and founder of Super Boat International. “With two great races taking place simultaneously in our beautiful city, we are giving our fans the opportunity of a lifetime to take part in a grand powerboat racing event like no other. We look forward to seeing them and all the teams once again.”

    Races on Wednesday, November 6th and Friday, November 8th, will determine the2019 National Championships for SBI. The Key West World Championship race dates are Wednesday, November 6th, Friday, November 8th, and Sunday, November 10th. Champions will be chosen by SBI’s point system.

    SuperBoat International welcomes all racers to attend their National Championship as well as their Key West World Championship race—the crownjewel of races—produced and sanctioned by Super Boat International Productions, Inc.®

    Further news will be announced soon. For more information and updates, visit superboat.com

    Jeez, RWO just put out the news flash that they were counting the Key West races as two events.

    RWO Race Season To Feature Four National Events

    Schedule to include the World Championships in Key West

    Race World Offshore, LLC (RWO) will open its 2019 season on August 16th with the first of four national races on a schedule that will include the prestigious Key West World Championship event in November. RWO was awarded the a five-year contract for the event on March 7 in a unanimous vote by the Key West city commission after it weighed competing bids from Super Boat International, which has produced the annual Key West contests for the past five years, and the Offshore Powerboat Association and Powerboat P1, which have banded together to produce the new American Power Boat Association Offshore Championship Series

    RWO plans to have four national races with events in Dunkirk, N.Y. (Aug. 16-18), Clearwater, Fla., (Sept. 26-29) and in Key West (Nov. 3-10) half races on Wednesday and Friday and the final fourth full day of racing on Sunday. In addition, RWO is opening up various open-canopy boat classes to accommodate most of the participants wanting to race in a professional series, and reducing entry fees, membership fees and equipment fees from previous years to make it more accommodating to teams.

    “This whole process has taken so long and it spilled over into the second quarter of 2019,” said Larry Bleil, the Key West-based founder of RWO, in a press release. “I am so happy it is over so we can get on with things. And now, we can finally roll out our plans and talk about this season.”

    Although Race World Offshore is an official club-member of the American Power Boat Association, the Key West, Fla.-based organization will run all of its events in 2019 without an APBA sanction. The decision was driven by the Offshore Powerboat Association’s refusal to allow RWO to produce an APBA-sanctioned race in Dunkirk, which is within the APBA's Northeast region. Also an APBA club, the Offshore Powerboat Association has the exclusive right to produce APBA events in the area.

    According to the press release, in Key West RWO will use Truman Waterfront Park Amphitheater for its opening and closing ceremonies, concerts and special events during the Key West race week.

    “Based on the cruise ship schedule, the races will be similar to previous years, with three days of racing and points will be accumulated to secure a World Title,” the release stated. “However, there will be notable awards for each of the three days of racing: Truman Waterfront Cup, Southernmost Continental Champion and World Champion respectively. There will be many other details to follow, but it is also important to note that all other sanctioning bodies and their classes of boats are welcome to participate.”

    Race World Offshore will provide online sign-up and fee schedules for its 2019 season on or before May 15. Team racing in RWO-produced events must be current APBA Racing members
