While the season opener event in Marathon, FL created many challenges, we heard incredible feedback from fans and teams alike as they enjoyed the beautiful venue, racers’ welcome party, VIP experiences and much more. With a record-breaking entry list including 66 boats, we were grateful to see so many familiar faces back in the pits and meet some new people as well. Keep watch for photo galleries from the event coming soon!
Despite facing tough weather conditions and collisions on the water, the event was still a great success in many aspects. We saw some awesome racing from all of our talented competitors, who steered the rough waters with talent and determination. The energy from the crowd was electric, and we were thrilled to see so many people come out to support the sport we love.
While the event may not have gone totally according to plan, it provided us with an opportunity to test our resilience and adaptability. We are grateful for the hard work and commitment of our staff, who worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of our competitors and spectators. We are also proud of the majority of our racers, who notably demonstrated incredible sportsmanship and professionalism when we were challenged in so many ways.
As we move forward in the season, we are excited to see what the future holds. We have some fantastic events being planned and we can’t wait to share them with you. Thank you for your ongoing support and passion for offshore powerboat racing. We look forward to catching you on the water!
