Englewood Beach expects a 40,000 crowd this weekend

40,000 people are expected to flock to Englewood Beach this weekend for the ‘Waterfest’ that includes the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) World Championships.

Waterfest organiser, Ray LaBadie told me this week:

This time of year we are out of season and things are real quiet, having the racing here is a big boost to our local economy.

I’m also very proud that the Southeast Tourism Society named Englewood Beach Waterfest one of top 20 Events in the Southeast for November 2019.

LaBadie continued:

We are expecting a good entry, Englewood is a small town and we are going to be pretty tight on space!

Registrations for the event close this evening and then we should have a good idea of the runners and riders for this weekend.

Saturday, November 24th – Races 1 – 4 from 11.00 – 17.00 (All classes)

Sunday, November 25th – Races 1 – 4 from 11.00 – 17.00 (All classes)
