Point Pleasant Beach is hosting it’s 50th anniversary of the Offshore Grand Prix on Sunday, June 16, 2019.
Before the race on Sunday, there will be an entire weekend filled with exciting events: a concert, a display and parade of the boats, and a rotary festival all within the Point Pleasant Beach Area.
Mayor Stephen Reid is thrilled to have the races back in Point Pleasant Beach for the 4th year in a row.
“Our race on June 16th, we’re going to have people from this area who love racing in this ocean on Point Pleasant Beach,” said Mayor Reid. “This is not a lake where it’s all nice and calm, this is with the elements and they never know what the elements are going to bring.”
The President of New Jersey Offshore Powerboat Racing Association (NJOPRA), Toni Potthoff and Mayor Reid are extremely thankful for the many sponsors who support this event. These sponsors include Jersey Mike’s Subs, Sea Tow, Captain Bill’s Landing, Amethyst Beach Motel and many more.
The race weekend kicks off on Thursday, June 13 with a “Meet the Racers” concert and raffle to benefit this year’s charity, The Little Red Library.
