The 5th China Powerboat League (CPL) concluded in Danjiangkou, the starting point of the middle route of South-to-North Water Diversion Project in central China's Hubei Province, on August 11, 2015.

As one of six stops of the 5th China Powerboat League, it was the third time for Danjiangkou to host the event, which attracted fourteen domestic powerboat teams from Shanghai, Aanhui and Jiangxi, etc, to compete in five programs - an F4 motorboat race, an F4 motorboat battle, a seated watercraft race, and a vertical water watercraft race, and a seated watercraft flying competition.

Powerboat racing was once regarded as an elite sport only accessible for professional racers in China, but over the years the sport has gained larger popularity than expected.
