Crystal Coast Grand Prix Racing Boat

Crystal Coast Grand Prix 2022

Don’t miss this year’s Crystal Coast Grand Prix, a 3-day boating race event in Morehead City running from September 9th through September 11th, 2022. Inspired by a boyhood passion, this event has become extremely popular on the Morehead City waterfront. To kick off the weekend, don’t miss the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) Racing Day 1 from 12 PM until 5 PM on Friday. You’ll surely get a great view of the action from any of the Morehead City waterfront businesses, including Jack’s Waterfront Bar. On Saturday, there are no official boat races but instead a ‘Lookout Shootout Poker Fun Run’ –  a Charity boat ride that tours the Crystal Coast from 10 AM until 4 PM. If you’re interested in participating, be sure to fill out the Lookout Shootout Poker Fun Run Registration Form. The excitement continues on Sunday with OPA racing from 12 PM until 5 PM, followed by an Awards Presentation at Jack’s Waterfront Bar at 7 PM.
