The Viking Ocean Showdown out of Cape May has traditionally been one of the big events for big boats at the Jersey Shore. The big news in recent years is that the folks at South Jersey Yacht Sales have opened up this tournament to other boat owners and in other ports at the Jersey.
In an official announcement at southjerseytournaments.com, George C. Robinson, III, president of South Jersey Yacht Sales, noted that the 4th Annual South Jersey Yacht Sales Offshore Showdown will run from July 7-10 and is open to other Viking, Ocean, Cabo, Albemarle, Jupiter, Invincible, Valhalla, Yellowfin and customers of South Jersey Yacht Sales.
“This year we have expanded the event, traditionally held at the Canyon Club in Cape May, NJ and now includes the Brielle Yacht Club, headquarters for the new South Jersey Yacht Sales office,” Robinson said. “We have exciting changes this year to the Cape May Venue including Captains meeting held at the Cape May Brewery, and Pool side dining after Friday’s fish day, Lay day events that have received so many positive comments, and the awards banquet at The Grand Hotel in downtown Cape May.”
According to Robinson, all transportation to and from The Showdown to the event venues in Cape May is provided by Great American Trolley Company.
As for the Manasquan River location at Brielle Yacht Club, Robinson called it an extraordinary headquarters for the Showdown Tournament citing the presence of Pig & Parrot restaurant, a Key West inspired Grill and Bar located at the Brielle Yacht Club. “A great fishing and boating community are enhanced by the wonderful downtown which will be sure to please the entire family,” Robinson noted.
