Great Race on the Sea Cancelled
August 4, 2014
Dear Friends, Racers and Fans,
I am sorry to announce the cancellation of the Freeport/Long Beach Great Race on the Sea August 22-24, 2014. I would like to thank everyone who has worked hard this year, putting in both time and money. Without getting into every detail, every aspect of putting on a safe and professional event was becoming un achievable due to constant changes and demands. Lack of cooperation and participation from area hotels and businesses was also a major factor in this decision.
DOUBLE POINTS in Detroit
August 4, 2014
Due to the cancellation of the "Great Race on the Sea" in New York, OPA Racing will be awarding "Double Points" to the race entrants who participate in the "Downtown Detroit International Powerboat Championships" in Detroit, Michigan, on September 7, 2014.
Promoters are working diligently on hotel discounts and logistics, and will have that information posted soon. Check the website regularly for updates!
