Boat racing is generally a family sport, and when Mum or Dad get to race in a V8 powered circuit race boat, the kids can also join in and race in the junior class. The Junior class boats is a great way for kids to be involved in boat racing. While creating an excellent source of fun for the kids, it also puts them on the right track for when they want to step up to the "big boats" later in life.
Junior boats are small outboard powered boats. There are horsepower restrictions (15hp in WA) for the respective age group classes.
