Boaters plan to race along Camden's waterfront
Friday, October 07, 2005 - Millennium Radio New Jersey


Hank Weisbecker



High speed boaters will converge on Camden Sunday afternoon for the second annual Liberty Grand Prix Boat Race. Forty to fifty boaters are expected to race their crafts between the Walt Whitman and Ben Franklin bridges.

Event organizer Ken Shuttleworth says the boats will reach speeds of ninety to one hundred miles per hour. "We call it 'Thunder on the River' because that's what it sounds like. It sounds like big thunder coming down."

Shuttleworth says high speeds and loud engines aren't the only aspects of the race that attract fans. "The boats are very colorful. They have paint jobs and they're very artistic in their own way." He says the race is essentially "Nascar on the water."

While the race is scheduled to begin on Sunday, those attending Camden's waterfront Saturday can to talk to the racers and get close-up views of the water crafts.

Event organizers say the race will help bring visitors to Camden who may not know that the waterfront has been redeveloped. "A lot of great things have taken place here over the last five or six years," said Shuttleworth. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Battleship New Jersey.

Rain looks bad until 10 am Sunday, then it's time to race!

Rain or shine, we race at 1pm and 3pm.

Yeah...hopefully everything will clear up by race time on Sunday. Keep the faith fellows!!

Unfortunately, tomorrow looks to be a rain soaked (and alcohol drenched) day.
