Just two longstanding, organized high-performance powerboating events remain this season, though to be precise the second one opens the 2020 season. And both are within days of one another in Southwest Florida.
The Fort Myers Offshore New Year’s Fun Run is set for Saturday, December 28. Just up the road a bit in Sarasota, the Joey Gratton Memorial New Year’s Day Fun Run is set for Wednesday, January 1.
