Thumbs up 70 + BOATS Attend APBA North American Championship Race

Wildwood, NJ Oct 1st & 2nd

NJ Governors Cup Hydrofest North American Championship

Quite refreshing to come to an event and see such a huge turn out of race boats. According John Shaw "This is the largest race of the year."

Due to the location of Wildwood, NJ it's quite easy for the boats in from the south to get to by hopping on the Cape May Ferry.

Some racers are even from as far away as Canada.

Winds on Saturday kept some of the smaller boats on their trailers while the larger boats that ran came back a little beaten up.

When asked John Shaw how he felt the conditions were, "It was rough !!!"

Hopefully Sunday will allow all to race.

Photos are being uploaded here:

Thanks !

They certainly had a lot to get squeezed on Sunday after windy conditions kept some classes on their trailers. They got it all done though and still had sun light for the Awards Ceremony where the Prize Money was dispersed right then and there !
