Freedom Boat Club sponsors raft-up in Florida

Freedom Boat Club will be hosting a Superstock Spectator Boat Raft Up on Saturday to support the P-1 and AquaX races.

Freedom Boat Club, along with co-sponsor 904HappyHour, will be hosting a Superstock Spectator Boat Raft Up on Saturday to support the P-1 and AquaX races. All boaters are invited to come out and raft up at the south end of the race out from the Ortega River in Jacksonville, Fla.

“Freedom Boat Club loves to support all types of boating events on the water,” Freedom Boat Club Jacksonville and St. Augustine owner Lisa Almeida said in a statement. “We enjoy getting people out to have fun with family and friends on our beautiful St. Johns River.”

Final Approach, an 80-foot houseboat, will be in one part of the raft-up. The houseboat is the marker for the best spot for boaters to anchor and watch the races. The racers will launch on the St. Johns River in front of Memorial Park. This is the second round of the 2015 Superstock Championship and the third for AquaX.
