    Mega Event in Sunny Isles Beach

    Remembering Don Aronow in Sunny Isles Beach

    The next stop on the OSS tour is in South Florida where Sunny Isles Beach will present the Offshore Powerboat Challenge Weekend. This event promises to be a mega event where performance boating groups come together in order to turn Haulover Park and Sunny Isles Beach into a High Performance Boating Paradise. On June 19 - 22, the Offshore Super Series will welcome the Historic Offshore Boat Racing Association (HORBA) and the Florida Powerboat Club to share the facilities at Haulover Park, and coordinate the weekend's events. OSS is also welcoming the APBA Class Super Light Tunnel class boats that will run several demonstration races throughout the weekend.

    What started as a simple boat race has turned into a "cause" that's attracted performance boaters from all segments of the sport. At this race performance boaters will pay tribute to Don Aronow, his memory, his boats and the legacy that he left behind. In Don's honor, HORBA will be staging a race to Bimini and back, the way Don and his competitors of the time did it out of the same Haulover Inlet. Open ocean all the way out of the sight of land, just man, machine and the ocean.

    This race site has also turned into a good excuse for racers from the 60s and 70s to converge on Sunny Isles Beach and hold a reunion party. The whole HORBA club will be in attendance and welcome race fans and swap a few stories and a few beers. Expect to see some of your old heroes in the Race Village at Haulover Park throughout the weekend.

    The Florida Powerboat Club is the driving force of performance boating in Florida and has built a reputation of providing first class poker run fun. The very first Poker Run that Stu Jones produced was out of Sunny Isles Marina near Haulover Inlet and Stu feels a personal attraction to this sight and has decided to join the fun and hold a Poker Run on Saturday and then enjoy the OSS racing action on Sunday.

    Our race producers, Susan Simpson, Larry Goldman and Brad Schoenwald have spent many months working out all the details and continue to find ways to make this weekend adventure even more exciting and entertaining for all involved.

    If you've never attended a boat race before, this will be the one you'll want to experience. If you've been to many boat races, you won't want to miss this mega event.
