Boat races in December?
Sea info

Arlington, TX

Hello,

I read that there will be a national boat race event on the Salton Sea December 5 - 7 or so. I am trying to find more information on this.

We would be traveling from out of state to attend, can you tell me a decent place to stay? We wouldn't mind something kind of vintage, yet comfortable. We aren't interested in a ritzy spa place, more like it used to be.

I've read about a place inland from Bombay Beach that looks fun. Would that be a good place, and what is it called again?

Thanks for any help.

Boat racing is returning to the Salton Sea. RPM Racing Enterprises will host the Salton Sea Speedweek event December 5-7 at the state park in North Shore.

The event will include racing boats and pleasure craft, Riverside County officials said.

Speed racing used to be a popular sport at the Salton Sea, especially between the 1930s and the 1950s.

The biggest attraction was the salinity levels, which would boost speeds and help boaters set records.

Thank you, Imari Love.

With some information from your link, I found this message board thread: http://www.boatracingfacts.com/forums/showthr...

It reads to me like the boat races are not a "done deal" at this time. I will try to contact that promoter and find out for sure.

We would still enjoy a trip out to the sea, and my family is in San Diego County. Do you know the name of any fun places to stay for a few nights in the vicinity of the sea?

There is Ray and Carol's, the Sun and Sea Motel. There's John's Landing that might have a trailer for you to rent for your stay... contact the West Shores Chamber of Commerce at three nine four four one one two for more answers.

Hope that helps,
