The races run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and there is a $5 fee per person.
For these races, the New Jersey State Power Boat Championships will feature the “Inboard” and Stock Outboard” categories. Competing boats are divided into classes based on hull size, type, weight, engine size, and modifications allowed.
The race length is five miles long, with racers taking five trips around a mile long course in full view of the spectators. As the course at the Lake Hopatcong State Park offers wider turns, while still keeping the boats far enough off shore to keep spectators safe. Plus, the sloped lawn at the state park offers an excellent and unique view of the boats as they come towards the spectators while on the front straight and go through turn one.
