Default Cruise around Manhattan with the Jersey Boyz

In the spirit of the Jersey Boyz racing teams, the OPA would like to invite you to join us for the 2002 year end High Point Award Diner that they have aptly named “Cruisin for a Bruisin”. The past two years this party was held at a beachfront nightclub, this year the party has moved to the water, literally. OPA has chartered the Cornucopia Princess www.cornucopiacruise.com and they will be hosting a very entertaining party from 7:15pm to 11:30pm on Saturday February 22nd as the ship cruises along the Hudson and East River while overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Take a look at their web site by clicking on the blue link and you’ll see this gorgeous luxury yacht that has three decks and is fully enclosed for your partying pleasure and comfort.

If you have never taken an evening cruise around Manhattan you need to be on this boat. It’s a very romantic and patriotic experience as you slowly view Manhattan Island from its best vantage point. No matter if you’re a racer, water volunteer or a race fan, you’re invited to enjoy this evening of sights and sounds with your favorite competitors.

The schedule for the evening is as follows:

6:57 Smoke flare is lit – 3 minutes to boarding
7:15 The boat leaves the wet pits
7:15 to 8:30 Cocktail Hour
7:15 to 11:00 Open Bar
8:30 to 10:00 Buffet Diner
10:00 to 11:30 Dessert and coffee
11:30 Return to wet pits

The bar will be open while the boat is running and the cost of all drinks, food, entertainment and the boat ride itself is included in the price of $87 per person.

OPA had a great summer of racing in 2002 and now with the formation of the Jersey Boyz and a P class only format, this summer is shaping up be spectacular. Many new teams are building boats or bringing out their old equipment to race again in this new exciting racing format. The OPA has registered boats between Virginia and Massachusetts. So far they have 15 boats committed to run in the P5 class alone! Not all will run every race but can you imagine the competition between 10 or more evenly matched boats all running in the same class?
Overall, we should see the boat counts closer to 40 boats per race with great competition in each class.

It’s obvious that the Boyz are doing something right to attract this much attention. What they are doing is going back to grass roots racing and catering to the average boat racers rather than the bigger high budget teams. OPA is all about local racers running for the love of the sport. Like it should be.

So put on your best zoot suit and join OPA and the Jersey Boyz celebrate last summer’s winners and this coming summer’s future champions. Jackets are required, gold chains and big hair is optional.

The boat leaves from foot of Smith St. in Perth Amboy NJ at 7:15pm sharp. Once in Perth Amboy, take Smith St. to the end and park at the corner of Smith and Front St. Look for the 130’ long yacht with the racing stripes and lights on the smoke stacks. There is a map at www.njoffshore.homestead.com/Yachtmap.html that shows the exact location of the dock.

We must ask that you make your register for this race in advance. The cutoff date for registration is 2/10/03. Please print out this form and fax it to OPA if you’re paying by credit card or mail it in with your check. No cash please.

See ya at the races,

Ron
