If you have speeds or times of the two boats in different races, then you could test this hypothesis. You would perform a t-test.
Basically you would need to calculate the mean and the standard deviations for each boat from their sample of races. From this you need to calculate t, ...
A description of the process of performing a hypothesis test is presented.
