Description

The country’s longest-running powerboat races happen right here in Dorchester! This year marks the 107th Cambridge Classic Power Boat Regatta May 13-14 on the Choptank River. It’s going to be a big event — 90 boats are expected, and some of them reach speeds up to 170mph! Read more in this story from the Dorchester Banner: bit.ly/2phfLGT

The Cambridge Classic Powerboat Regatta is the longest-running powerboat race in the United States. This year marks its 107th running! This world-class event, organized by the Cambridge Power Boat Regatta Association, will bring 90 boats from both the American League and the Canadian League racing in six classes:

  • Grand Prix Hydroplanes
  • H350 Hydroplanes
  • Formula 2500 Hydroplanes
  • 2.5 Liter Hydroplanes
  • 1 Liter Hydroplanes
  • Jersey Speed Skiffs

The fleet ranges from the classic Jersey speed skiffs turning on their sides and going airborne at 70mph to the 1,500-horsepower grand prix boats that reach speeds of 170 mph. Admission is FREE with a $5 a day charge for in/out parking. Food and drink will be available. BONUS: During the races, local microwbrewery RAR Brewing will be releasing a beer specially brewed for the event — the Cambridge Classic Rooster Tail Ale.

  • WHEN: The races happen from 10am to 5pm on May 13 and 14, 2017. Spectators can tour the pit area beginning at 10am both days.
  • WHERE: The races happen on the Choptank River in Cambridge, MD. The action happens at Great Marsh Park, 1 Somerset Ave. Spectators can also watch the Cambridge Classic from the water. The fleet will raft at Rooster Point. A no-wake zone will be established from Howell Point to the Choptank River Bridge. BONUS for BOATERS: The Cambridge Municipal Yacht Basin will offer free transient slip rental on Friday and Saturday nights during the month of May. Reserve your spot at 410-228-4031.
  • THE PIT: There will be some opportunity to visit the pit area to see some of the boats up close and meet the race teams.
  • SAVE THE DATE for THUNDER ON THE CHOPTANK: Mark your calendar for another great powerboat race on August 19 and 20, 2017, when the Kent Narrow Racing Association brings their race to Cambridge, Maryland! That’s right, Thunder on the Narrows is moving to Cambridge in 2017 and it will be known as Thunder on the Choptank.
