Correct !
Quite surprised myself after the cross support shown for the OPA's Sunny Isles Race last June.

IT IS WHAT IT IS and I think I finally come to the conclusion that nothing in this sport will ever change ... Sad but true...

Yes, there was a little more than normal out there, the shocking part was how brown the water was from all the flooding up north. Once they open the Erie canal & the locks there is going to be sooooooooooo much more debris floating down that river from Upstate NY, Vermont, etc. out to the ocean. Thank you Irene
I think John hit a dead horse in his Spectre years ago and that wasn't after a storm.

I guess the horse got too close to the bank that day!

Here's what the Chesapeak looked like 50 miles south of where I live. good thing they modified our course for the poker run!

F1-00 Racing was at the NY Race


Keep in mind when looking at the production classes, some of the boats are not competitive in both sanctioning bodies. And keep in mind OPA's last regular season race should have been in Long Island (Thank you Irene), On Sept 25th is the OPA National title race, this is an SBI last regular season race with their National title race in Clearwater on October 2. The teams need to look at their points and figure out which is best for them, it's all about the finances and what can be afforded. We had BOTH our OPA & SBI boat at the NY race but only raced the Fountain & not the Formula. We cannot afford to race the Formula in NY and risk ripping of a drive, damaging a prop, blowing up a motor, etc with the National Championship and overall High point Championship on the line. And keep in mind. We all know that the SBI Key West World Championships is in November but the OPA World Championships is October 6-9.

Thanks for the info. I trying to get a grip on what goes on in the North East as I'm putting together a boat to hopefully run with a buddy from Palm beach. We're hoping to split, some down south and some up here. I was just curious about the races closet to my back yard as I'd like to bring the boat up here for the summer.
