. You can expect us to create quite a spectacle!”
Marmong Point Marina ,and Dantia have come on board as sponsors for the round as well as, RMS, Wilson Lift And Crown Lands ,without this support and the support from local residents and businesses the Offshore Superboats would not be here this year.
Saturday will see a first for our sport , with a race on Saturday starting at 1pm going for 20 minutes , Then two thirty-minute races on Sunday at 11am and 1pm with the top end of the Lake closing fifteen minutes before each race.
“We’re racing between Warners Bay Shops and Marmong Point Marina so there is some fairly large sweeping turns that will give plenty of great vantage points around the Lake
Each lap is about 6 kilometres and there’ll be up to 10, million dollar plus race boats, not to mention their rigs, which are just as impressive.”
Alternatively, spectators can come down to the pits at Marmong Point Marina from Friday on to meet the drivers and see the boats up close.
