HERVEY Bay will be a hive of activity again this weekend when the Australian Offshore Powerboat Club returns to the region for round three of the Offshore Superboat Series.
Races on Saturday and Sunday will be the 11th consecutive year the event has been held on the Fraser Coast.
The series has been growing in recent years, especially with the introduction of the new Super Class boats, which will see competitors from Melbourne, Mallacoota, Sydney and Townsville, to name a few, visit the whale watching capital of the world.
Bay City Marine and the Cleaver family will be looking to defend their wins in the 2021 instalment of the Sports 85mph class.

Boats will race along a course off Torquay Beach on Saturday May 7 and Sunday May 8.
A street parade involving all the competitors will be held along the Charlton Esplanade from 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon.
Fraser Coast Division 7 Councillor Darren Everard said the superboat races would add to the lively and varied calendar of events across the region.
“Our reputation as a centre for events, whether it is cycling, sailing or powerboat racing, is steadily growing,” Cr Everard said.
“There is so much happening that there is something for everyone nearly every weekend.”
