Offshore Powerboat Racing
For more than four decades, the New Jersey Offshore Powerboat Racing Association, the oldest club of its kind in the United States, has held an annual series of offshore competitions from May through November.
One of the group's main events is the New Jersey Offshore Grand Prix, held each year off Point Pleasant Beach. In addition to the race, a week of festivities takes place in Point Pleasant Beach and surrounding communities. Race week also includes an amateur event designed for fast boats ranging from 21 feet to 45 feet.
