Row, row, row your boat... quickly down the stream! The sixth annual Stuart Sailfish Regatta event, sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association, returns to the Treasure Coast on May 20 and May 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

This year’s races will be held on the Stuart Causeway on a 1.1-mile, oval racecourse by the northern side of the bridge.

Racers from all over South Florida will compete in sanctioned boat races for prize money. Spectators can expect fast and exciting hydroplanes, race boats and powerboats battling it out for the title. 

The event aims to increase tourism and community involvement on the Treasure Coast. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast and the U.S. Sailing Center of Martin County.

The SSR is a family-friendly event, and will have live music, kid zones, a swimsuit contest and a spectator viewing area on top of the bridge. Regular SSR-goers can expect additional food services this year, as well as an improved layout of the racing area. 

The regatta will be open to 10 classes of inboards, four classes of outboards and the Powerboat P1 SuperStock Series. A mix of 12 or more Canadian Grand Prix race boats and US top tier racers will be participating and upping the ante for their competitors. Tickets are $15-$75 and can be bought here
