New Zealand Grand Prix Hydroplane Boat Racing

Accelleration on water – the worlds fastest Grand Prix Hydroplanes – a really fast motorboat racing with different venues around the world – A key aspect of hydroplanes is that they use the water they’re on for lift rather than buoyancy, as well as for propulsion and steering: when travelling at high speed water is forced downwards by the bottom of the boat’s hull. The water therefore exerts an equal and opposite force upwards, lifting the vast majority of the hull out of the water. This process, happening at the surface of the water, is known as ‘planing’.
