Coniston Power Boat Records Week is the only event in the powerboating calendar open to all classes of boat from the smallest hydroplanes through inshore circuit racers to the largest offshore boats. During the five days, racers will battle at speeds of over 150mph to attempt to set new world records.

This has been a popular annual event since it's inception in 1970 and was originally held on Windermere. The first run is, weather permitting, at 8:00am. Lunch is from 12:00 - 2:00pm with the last run around 4:00pm, with the final run on Friday at 2:00pm but without lunch.

Coniston Power Boat Records Week is free for spectators with the best views from the shoreline at either end of the run. There is also an opportunity to see the boats up close in the pit area at Coniston Boating Centre.
