The fastest powerboats have a driver and a throttleman controlling the engines.

The world's fastest powerboats will battle deck-to-deck this weekend as the Super Boat National Championship returns to Clearwater Beach.

Last year's event drew more than 25,000 spectators and 2,500 boats lined the 2.5-mile course. The powerboats, several more than 50 feet long and capable of going more than 150 mph, will be on display beginning today at Coachman Park.

Saturday's festivities include a seafood festival and meet-and-greet with the race teams on Cleveland Street in Clearwater. Sunday's races are at noon and 2 p.m. Spectators can view the race anywhere along the beach.
