Get ready for an exhilarating 2024 APBA Offshore National Championship Series, featuring a thrilling mix of venues and waterways. Organized by Powerboat P1 and Race World Offshore, the lineup includes longstanding events like Thunder On Cocoa Beach and exciting new additions such as Ocean City, promising a dynamic season for powerboat enthusiasts. Stay tuned for the adrenaline-pumping action that awaits in this year’s offshore powerboat racing season!
Between longtime events and new ones produced by Powerboat P1 and Race World Offshore, teams competing in the 2024 American Power Boat Association Offshore National Championship Series have a diverse eight-event mix of venues and waterways to consider. This preseason has seen more last-minute shuffling than most—more specifically, the annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks in Central Missouri to be produced by Powerboat P1 is officially part of the APBA series as well as the now five-event Union Internationale Motonautique Class 1 World Championship Series.
Both Powerboat P1 and Race World Offshore are APBA member-organizations.
