Thunderboat Races San Diego

Bayfair San Diego is an annual family festival that features interactive exhibits, fireworks, and the World Series of Powerboat Racing—the Thunderboat races! Featuring 23 classes of racing and 150 teams, the boats reach up to speeds of 225 miles per hour, creating an exciting event that thrills people of all ages! This year’s event will be held the weekend of September 14th through September  16th 2018 at 1404 Vacation Road and prices range from $20-$250, depending on what you are planning on doing.

The Boats

Small, colorful, fast, and powerful, you will feel the roar of the engines as they pass by as a tickle in the pit of your stomach. These hydroplane boats skim across the water faster than you can see and can be extremely dangerous if not piloted by experience hydroplaners. Hydroplane boat racing first appeared on the scene in the 1920s and were created out of timber boarding and plywood, the lightest weighing materials available at the time. Today, much lighter materials are used, creating even faster vessels.

The Party

Over 1000 motorhomes converge on Bayfair each year, full of people eating carny foods, drinking the copious amounts of beer available from the beer garden, and enjoying family friendly activities, including fireworks and a kid’s fun zone that will keep your children happy and engaged throughout the weekend! Live entertainment keeps the party going into the wee hours of the night. Bayfair and the Thunderboat races are where you want to be this September!
