Event Description

The Wildwoods NJ Governor's Cup is an action-packed family event that includes international power boat racing coupled with the Hydrofest Marketplace of craft merchandise and food vendors. Eleven classes of race boats--hydroplanes and flatbottom boats--will compete at 80 to 140 mph on the bay waters of Wildwood Crest. Approximately 85 race teams from the United States and Canada will challenge each other for the Eastern Divisional Championships for power boat racing as well as the New Jersey Governor's Cup. Qualifying heats are on Saturday and the finals are on Sunday. The Hydrofest Marketplace is open from 9 am to 4 pm and offers something for the entire family. The racing program begins at 10:30 am. The event is FREE. However, for visitors that want to get closer to the racing action and the race teams, pit passes can be purchased for $10. Closed footwear is required in the pits.
