The Bayfair Thunderboat / Powerboat Races are put on by Thunderboats Unlimited Inc.

Thunderboats Unlimited, Inc. is a non-profit corporation established by a group of committed Southern California racing enthusiasts, to promote powerboat racing in San Diego, and increase tourism in the beach area. The group was initially brought together by the late legendary hydroplane racer Bill Muncey, for whom the 2½ mile race course is named, but soon grew to include individuals from all aspects of the community.

A Board of Governors was formed to oversee race operations and give fans in attendance an enjoyable, superb regatta. Today the Board consists of members whose dedication to excellence ensures that world-class powerboat racing will continue to be an integral piece of the fabric of life in America’s Finest City.

Thunderboats Unlimited is a non-profit 501c(4) committed to supporting local San Diego charities through powerboat racing.
