This is the first book that documents the development and history of racing activity on the bay. It focuses on the limited, inboard racing classes of the American Power Boat Association (APBA) because those craft have been the racing segment most avidly followed in the region. The drama of racing and the personalities of those involved are conveyed through the authors first-hand experiences gathered during close to thirty years of following Chesapeake Bay regattas. Particular tribute is paid to the owners, drivers, and mechanics who have risked their money, and sometimes their lives, to undertake the exciting and dangerous sport of powerboat racing, and, in so doing, to entertain the enthusiasts who follow their activities. An appendix listing of boat names, owners, and classes will surely be of interest to any racing fan.
