The Club was formed in 1938 under the banner of the Upper Hawkesbury Motor Boat Club.
This makes it the oldest continually running Club in Australia .
Bridge to Bridges were run prior to the founding of the Club by boating enthusiasts.
The Bridge to Bridge is run on the first Sunday in May & the annual Spectacular in September.
Today the Club caters for most types of racing, Inboards, Outboards, Handicaps, and Scratch races, large Spectaculars and Club Race days.
Ages range from Juniors of 8 years of age to some of our senior members of 70 years and older.
Some of Australia's Power Boat racing Champions started off in Formula Future racing.
Upper Hawkesbury Power Boat Club is at Governor Phillip Park, at the Windsor boat ramp.

To all the Power Boat Racing Community,
Looking at the various State Government directives, as well as the Commonwealth statements via the Prime Minister and health.gov.au, we believe we have no option than to suspend all powerboat racing until the end of April 2020.
The various government and health department policies are designed to reduce contact via crowds and physical contact and slow the rate of the spread of the disease.
Some sporting organisations have put a one-
The suspension of racing until the end of April may need to be re assessed and an extension may be necessary. This will be reviewed as Government and Medical guidelines are continually updated.
We suggest the end of April at this stage. Clubs with events beyond the beginning of May will need to consider their current position and possibly assume that a further suspension will be necessary.
