    Description
    This archive series numbered [001] - [015] consists of 15 certificates awarded to Jack Lewitz by the New South Wales Council and the Australian Power Boat Association for winning various speed boat races with WENDY, WENDY ANN and WENDY TOO.
    SignificanceThis collection illustrates the boom era of speedboating in the decades after World War II. The increasing affordability and widespread use of cars, engines and the advent of mass production made speedboating affordable and the sport became a popular pastime on the flatwater surfaces of rivers and lakes.
