The jet boats are coming!


In just two months the jet boats hit the St. Joe River as the Canada and USA Race Series visits St. Maries for the inaugural running of Race the Joe! The event is May 17-19, 2013.

The speedy high-powered boats will travel the 25 miles from St. Maries to Calder in a series of timed runs. It’s the one weekend of the year when the speed restrictions are lifted from the river, allowing for the jet boats to fly over the water and bounce across the rapids.

During last year’s World Cup Series, spectators lined both sides of the river to watch the races, some pitching tents and making camp to ensure prime seating when race day arrived. But don’t worry, there is plenty of great access points along the course to see all the action.

Make plans now to spend the weekend here in the beautiful St. Joe River valley – You won’t want to miss it.
