After a successful event in its initial year in 2012, powerboat racing is back in Columbia County.
Friday through Sunday, American Power Boat Association racers will be at Pollard’s Cove at Clarks Hill Lake vying for the top spot in the Wildwood Park Regatta.
“Last year was the first year we ever did it and it turned out pretty well,” said Jeb Bell, Wildwood Park coordinator. “We had maybe 50 boats and we’re expecting the same amount, maybe a few more. Anywhere from early teens to 60-year-old people are going to be up here in this event.”
