Hydroplane hulls will range in size from 16 to 26 feet in length. Engines ranging from 2.5 litre to blown 1500 HP powerhouses will produce speeds from 80 to 150 mph around a 1-mile course located in Hambrooks Bay.

Bleacher seating is available along the front stretch with a great view and a family-friendly atmosphere.
Food and drink will be available (Sorry, no outside coolers allowed).

Watch the action from Gerry Boyle Park at Great Marsh, at the end of Somerset Avenue.
