Word broke yesterday with a release from Powerboat P1 confirming that it will hosting two ocean races after reviving the historic the Gateway Marathon back in 2019. The first open ocean adventure known as the Gateway Marathon makes a two-way crossing from West Palm Beach Florida to Freeport Bahamas. The second will be a return of the Ocean Cup overseas in Cowes. The first event will once again be sanctioned by A.P.B.A scheduled for this summer in June and the second even the Ocean Cup will be taking place later on in August.
Lucas Oil confirmed their participation again last month, following their adventure in this event last season. In addition to lucas, Sheriff Lobo and Twisted Metal have also been added to the lineup. Although this event did start as v-hull invitational it appears that the classes are opening up with Super Stock team DoubleEdge Motor Sports’ outboard powered cat being added to the list.
The events and their links are accessible by our BoatStars Event Locator tool once the dates are set in stone. We will be keeping a close eye on both events
