What to watch out for when you are on a Poker run in your powerboat or RIB.

If you are thinking of going on a Poker run in your Powerboat this weekend make sure that you don’t end up like these people.

Click here to see a funny you tube clip from an American boating TV channel that covers all sorts of Powerboating activities. The video goes on to show a very funny clip from a Evinrude Etec advert involving to guys out in their powerboat.

For those that don’t already know what a poker run for Powerboats is, heres the answer that I found on a website called Loch Sport Boat Club.

What is a Poker Run?

A Poker run is not a race for Powerboats. It’s a game of chance and an assembly of vessels of all pedigrees and proportions. A Poker Run is fun on the water, powerboating at its most enjoyable, and a chance to renew old acquaintances and make new friends.

Each participating Powerboat navigates a carefully charted course, stopping at 5 checkpoints along the route to pick-up a sealed envelope containing a single playing card. At the final checkpoint, the envelopes are opened and the crew holding the best poker hand is declared the winner!

A Poker Run is an organised, activity orientated, fun filled safe event. Naturally it helps to have a great body of water, but equally as important are the card stops and special hosts that cater to Poker Runners throughout the run.

Poker Runs are for the entire family on your powerboat. At each of the five checkpoints, host communities/organizations provide unique and entertaining activities, sometimes linked with waterfront festivals and other powerboating events.”

Of course Poker runs are not just for hard powerboats but also for RIBs.
