- Rochester Offshore Powerboat Association. "The Rochester Offshore Powerboat Association was originally formed in the fall of 1987 by a group of Offshore Racing enthusiasts. The original focus for the club was to promote and organize the exciting sport of offshore powerboat racing in and around the Greater Rochester Area and Western New York. The first local club race was held in September of 1988 on Lake Ontario with a ten mile oval course that ran from just east of the Genesee River to just west of Forest Lawn in Webster. After the success of the race, ROPA organized two subsequent races in 1989 and 1990 utilizing the same course. Those two races however, added an A.P.B.A. divisional race to the local club race. This attracted over sixty high performance boats, some up to forty one feet long, and boasting up to two thousand horse power with speeds over one hundred miles per hour. Not only did these races provide excitement for spectators but ROPA donated proceeds to such worthy charities as the Special Olympics and Camp Good Days and Special Times."
