2011 Offshore, Endurance, Poker Runs et al - anything to add?
After searching around the forums here, Pwcoffshore, Macc Racing's site, and everyone's favorite search engine, I thought I would share the info I pulled together. I haven't raced formally and have been overseas for 8 years, so please feel free to add to, update, and correct the following (edit, PM, post below, whatever works!).
2011 - US Events
I didn't see a 2011 APBA schedule, did email them, and in the interim, found the RPM Racing events list which covered most of the APBA events for the previous year:
Feb 26th - Mark Hahn Memoria in Havasu (hope everyone has a blast here!)
? March 27th - Dana Point to Avalon (listed at Tentative)
July 16 and 17 - Long Beach Offshore Powerfest - LB to Catalina and back
? Sept 16 - 18 - San Diego Bay Fair (not sure about the PWC days this year)
? Oct 22 - Blue Water Resort and Casino 300 (PWC info?)
Nov 6 - Dana Point to Oceanside and Back
For the East Coast - it doesn't look like there is a lot going on...
However the 2010 APBA schedule listed an Offshore Poker Run in Sarasota Florida in June of 2010. Did anyone make it to this event, and does anyone have any details on a 2011 followup?
Other than that, I know that the Wavedaze crew in Virginia Beach has done some nice long rides (not races) as part of their past events which are usually held in October.
As for international runs - I'll post something in the appropriate forum after pulling together some info for the US - but please feel free to post up and or PM me about that as well!

PWCTODAY has a thread for an offshore race in Mexico this year.
in addition, look up DJSA racing in Nor. Cal. They have a few endurance races, not many "offshore" but long distance races in bay's and lakes and stuff. Pretty good promoter as well.

May 22, 2011 or November – Date TBD based on racer feedback – do you want the Dana Point, Ca to Oceanside and Back Race in the third weekend in May or November of 2011? Feedback Appreciated.

There is no TCO award for the Sportsman Class.
