On 9th and 10th of May Thundercat racing will take place at Watergate Bay. If you are stuck for transport to and from the event, give Coastline Travel a call. The Event is spectacular, especially if there’s a bit of swell running. It takes place close to shore and attracts many people. In any case, the beach is clean and there’s plenty of it with a café and restaurant close by; even just across the road there is a good pub.
Each Thunder-cat boat is 4 metres long and crewed by two people: a driver who steers and a co-pilot who uses his weight to try and keep the vessel stable in order to achieve the best possible speed around the course.
This is a National event with teams competing in six heats. The top 12 teams will go through to the final nine-lap heat, on each day. With boats battling the incoming surf and reaching high speeds, the event promises to be an exhilarating show for spectators.
