Suffolk Considers Shifting Powerboat Racing Event
SUFFOLK COUNTY — The county’s annual powerboat racing event — the Battle on the Bay — was cancelled last year because of Hurricane Irene and this year, it may be moving from Great South Bay to the ocean. A legislative resolution allowing Great South Bay Racing Inc. to use Suffolk County facilities at Smith Point County Park on Fire Island was approved Wednesday, according to reports. A full legislature vote could happen next week.
The summer races are scheduled for Aug. 24 and 25.
