These exciting little boats are fun to build and exhilarating to race. This isn't just fun for the men, it's a family sport with racing classes for children 12 and younger, children 13 to 16 and adults with different weight classes. You build your boat from a kit or blueprint, choose your own theme and graphics and start racing. The boats are powered by either a 6 or 8 horsepower engine depending on the weight class. 

Cocktail Class Wooden Boat Racing was founded in 2010 to encourage and organize racing in the Cocktail Class Runabout. Based on the out-board racer SKUA, an 8 ft. plywood skimmer designed in 1939 by Charles MacGregor, the Cocktail Class Runabout is an economical, easily constructed and exciting runabout. It is ideal for racing at all skill levels and ages. Although a young powerboat racing organization, the CCWBRA and its one-design Cocktail Class Runabout have received overwhelming enthusiasm and support from around the world. Boats are being built and raced in 33 states and 7 countries. We are sure they will engage all generations of your family and friends for many years to come!
