The 2013 Bright House Clearwater Super Boat National Championship and Seafood Festival is turning up the heat on Clearwater Beach
CLEARWATER, FL (August 30, 2013) The 2013 Bright House Clearwater Super Boat National Championship and Seafood Festival
returns to Clearwater Beach later this month and is jam-packed with family friendly VIP events, a spectacular seafood festival and
fireworks show and some of the fastest and largest offshore power boats in the world. Bringing Super Boat International racing to
Clearwater Beach was a no-brainer according to Bay Area restaurateur Frank Chivas. After being involved in the Super Boat International
races in Key West, FL, Chivas knew “Clearwater would be the perfect spot to do this” – he also knew exactly who to partner with to make
it a thundering success – former Clearwater Mayor and current Bright House Networks Executive, Brian Aungst, Sr.
The 2012 Clearwater races saw huge crowds turn out to Clearwater Beach, where an estimated 25,000 people on 2,500 boats lined
the beaches of the 2.5-mile-long race course. Beaches were lined 20 deep with beach-going spectators while others watched from the
comfort of hotels, restaurants and condos along the beach. The races and festival brought a much needed boost to area tourism,
according to the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce.
CRANK IT UP! The outstanding sponsors and local-business partnerships guarantee to make the
2013 Bright House Clearwater Super Boat National Championship and Seafood Festival bigger, better and faster!!
All proceeds from the festival benefit local Clearwater charities.
