Speedboat Racers (Kid Racers) (Paperback)
Motorboats first took to American waters in the late 1800s. Yacht clubs started to hold races on rivers and lakes. By the early 1900s, powerboat racing had official rules. It became a national sport. You can race a powerboat as soon as you are nine years old. It doesn't matter if you're a boy or a girl, tall or short, big or small. Successful boat racers come in all shapes and sizes.
