Boat Fail: Jetboat crashes during race

Racing jetboats can go at serious speeds so it doesn't take much to get it wrong

With 1000hp jet engines on 17ft boats, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that they are going to be amazingly fast and difficult to control.

As with many insane bits of kit, it didn’t take long for races to start up and despite the drivers displaying some incredible bravery and skill, they sometimes get it wrong. Watch this week’s Boat Fail video to see what happens.
