Sprint boat racing and bikinis

We may no longer  have the bikini portion of the Miss America pageant, but at least we still have sprint boat racing!

Er... not that the two topics are remotely related, but I needed an excuse to link to bikini pictures, so there is that. At any rate, enjoy the racing and the bikinis.

I'm too lazy to 'bing'.
#2 seat is navigator?
Throttle positions are idle and full power?
Reflexes are on par/greater than NASCAR, similar to fighter jockeys?
Seems a safe sport.

Oh, bikinis. Entirely different skill set.

Yea, the crew consists of a driver and a navigator. The courses are fixed, but the paths through them change from race to race have to be memorized. The navigator does that and uses hand signals to direct the driver.

Thanks for the response. Driver needs lighting reflexes would seem.

I've added another post that shows the navigator working.
