The reality of the dangers inherent in the sport of offshore powerboat racing were driven home by the tragic events of our 2017 race.
We are saddened but hardened in our resolve to do everything we possibly can
to make the races safe.
To that end, we are seeking water volunteers to participate in future races in both Point Pleasant Beach and Lake Hopatcong.
The following are positions we need
to fill for each race:
PACE BOATS (minimum of 3)
START/FINISH, TURNS 1, 2, 3 and 4
(vessels large enough to clearly mark each buoy, these will be anchored for the duration of the race and will carry race officials)
MEDICAL BOATS (minimum of 4) to carry EMTs and must be fast enough to respond to any emergency.
DIVE BOATS (minimum of 4) to carry EMT Divers and must also be capable of rapid response.
SWEEP BOATS (ideally as many as 16) are dispatched to continually patrol the length of the race course in order to keep the course clear of spectator vessels.
