Race boat weekend
31 July 2022 | Pine River, inside the St Clair River
Doug Lauzon | Sunny and warm
Today was the St Clair Offshore Powerboat Race. After staging some sixty boats on their trailers along Riverside Drive from Thursday until race day, it was the day to show the crowds lining the boardwalk which team would take the checkered flags.
Prior to race day, the road was lined with food trucks, vendors, and various bands performing on the stage in front of the St Clair Square. There was probably over five hundred fans celebrating with drink in hand.
Race day was a perfect day with sunny skies, warm temps, light winds, and just enough chop on the river for ideal race conditions.
