2020 Speedboat Spectacular
Celebrating 100 years of power boat racing at St. George Motor Boat Club
Planning now on hold
Due to the Covid 19 Virus restrictions the St. George Motor Boat Club is not currently open to guests or able to host events (although a take away service is available). Therefore planning for the 2020 Spectacular, Vintage & Veteran boat display and Australian FF championship races is currently on hold. At the moment it looks like all of the events planned for May will need to be postponed to a later date. A final decision will be made as more information is made available from Government sources.
On 23 and 24 May 2020 the St. George Power Boat Club will be hosting the Centenary Spectacular at the St. George Motor Boat Club. $50,000 of prize money will be on offer plus four APBA Australian Championships.
On the following weekend, 30 and 31 May 2020, the club will be hosting a Vintage & Veteran Boat Demonstration (on water) and Display (On land) plus the Australian Formula Future Championships.

Boats wishing to participate in any of the events (Spectacular, V&V On Water Demonstration, V&V Static Display) are required to submit an entry form and pay the entry fee prior to 1 May 2020.
