Electrically powered boats have held the R/C model boat World Speed Record for a number of years. Interestingly, advances in Battery and Motor technology have produced speeds that cannot be matched by IC powered boats. Races are held in a number of classes covering Submerged Drive, Surface Drive and Hydroplanes.
The Fast Electric Section currently holds two National events a year. The National Championships and the SAWS (Speed Records) event.
The National Championships are used as the qualifying event for inclusion in the MPBA Team, entered for the NAVIGA World Championships.
