St. Clair River Classic - APBA/OPA Offshore


Mark your calendars for the 2016 St. Clair River Classic July 29-31 in St. Clair, Michigan. The American Power Boat Association (APBA) and Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) organize the annual event held on the St. Clair River. This photo was captured at last year’s event showing the newly-formed team, TEAM 27, with owner/driver John Jackman from Washington Township, Michigan, along with Chip Miller on the throttles. TEAM 27 brought the 40-foot MTI catamaran, powered by a pair of 1,000-hp Sterling engines, to first place in Class-2 while competing in their very first offshore race at the Classic. — Paul Kemiel
