About Clearwaterâs 1st Annual Super Boat National Championship Festival: When Super Boat International (SBI) founder and 30-year veteran, John Carbonell, wanted to produce Clearwaterâs 1st Annual Super Boat National Championship Festival two local area businessmen made it happen: Restaurateur Frank Chivas and Former Mayor of Clearwater Brian Aungst Sr.
Carbonell has been producing the World Championship Races in Key West every year for 3 decades as well as the races in Sarasota held every 4th of July. Now Clearwater, the next ânew great locationâ will have something Key West doesnât haveâ¦the absence of cruise ships obstructing the race sight lines. âItâs a great time of year to support the tourism industry,â says Aungst. â[SBI] needed another spot and Clearwater Beach is one of the prettiest beaches in the world.â
Clearwaterâs 1st Annual Super Boat National Championship Festival will be produced by Super Boat International and presented by Brighthouse Networks. To see the full list of sponsors, partners and sponsor hotels, visit http://www.clearwatersuperboat.com
