Feel the Rush of Excitement at Roar Offshore

October 07, 2019

Back again this October 10-12, this popular event is not just any ole points race, but the National Championship Race for the entire OPAA race season. You won’t want to miss out on seeing who will be crowned the champ! The entire race will be visible at any location on the beach from the pier stretching to mid-Island area, as well as on the water on the spectator anchoring location. This unique Fort Myers slice of life will have you up close to feel the wild thrill of the roar as the boats rush past you at rates up to 180 mph. The race is a great event loved by the community and visitors and attracts 60,000-70,000 spectators on both land and water. In short? This is a can’t-miss Fort Myers experience!
