The First Panhellenic Speed boat races took place in Piraeus, under the auspices of the local Municipality, on October 10, 1971.
Thirty-five speed boats took part, of which only 15 finished, as the rest developed mechanical problems. The winner was named Koligiannis, operator of the Greek-made boat "Hannibal".
We are in Marina Zeas in Piraeus, where we see the filmmaker talking to a girl as they wait for the beginning of the speedboat race.
The boats that are going to take part in the race make test runs until the moment they gather at the starting point.
The race begins. A plane, which drags a banner with the Greek flag, monitors the progress of the race. The speed boats are racing, some look like they almost fly from the extremely high speed. At various points along the way there are some anchored auxiliary boats. We watch the buoy on the u-turn and we can see Piraeus in the background.
The filmmaker and the girl watch and comment. Lastly, a general view of the Saronic Gulf.
