2017 NZ Offshore Powerboat Series at Ramada Taipa

Ramada Resort Reia Taipa Beach is proud to be the major sponsor of this years Offshore powerboat series.

The racing started in the 60’s and has become one of New-Zealand’s most well-established water sports. Watching the fleet of multi and mono hull, large and small boats thunder across the water at speeds of up to 200km/h and hearing the distinctive roar of engines is spine-tingling. This is the ultimate “motorsport on water”.

Racing and race days are a great family event, with many of the teams consisting of father and son, father and daughter and husband and wife. Boats are on display pre and post race giving you a chance to be up close, take a photo or two, and chat with the competitors. Race day action varies from event to event, with kids’ rides and entertainment, aeronautical displays, wildcat and thundercat racing and giveways, all aimed at making sure a fun time is had by all.

The best part about it is it’s FREE! Best views are from the resort so make sure you come along and see for yourself, it really is an event not to be missed.
