    Offshore Powerboat World Championships return to Englewood Beach Waterfest, Nov. 18-21

    ENGLEWOOD BEACH – The Offshore Powerboat Association World Championships returns to Englewood Beach, as part of Englewood Beach Waterfest, slated for Nov. 18-21.

    In 2019, the last time Englewood hosted that race – which is scheduled for Nov. 20-21 – it featured more than 70 boats and had become the largest race on the circuit.

    The race can attract up to 40,000 people, with more than a half-million people in the Midwest watching on livestream.

    Steve Gardiner, president of the Englewood Beach Waterfest Inc. board of directors, has previously said that translated into an $8 million impact on the local economy.

    NMB RV Resort and Dry Dock Marina, based in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is the keystone sponsor.

    “They've signed on to be our primary sponsors for this year and for next and they also have a boat racing, Gardiner said. “They’re in it with both feet up to their hips.”

    The resort is both seeking to draw people to South Carolina and contemplating expanding into Florida, Gardiner said.

    After a slow start with local sponsors, those have picked up, too. “This is the best year we’ve had for sponsorships, ever,” Gardiner said.

    Earlier: Englewood Beach Waterfest canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19

    The nonprofit Englewood Beach Waterfest also distributes money to other area nonprofits.

    In 2019, it gave $7,500 to six different local nonprofits.

    More than 60 boats – including between four and six entries in the unlimited super boat class – have expressed interest in racing. More than 70 are anticipated to show up on race weekend.
