ST. JOHN – Sprint boat racing has been postponed until the fall due to the coronavirus quarantine rules.
Webb’s Slough announced its June 20 race date has been rescheduled to Sept. 26.
The sprint boat race course annually hosts two events and hopes to retain that tradition this year by moving the June 20 date which would have been the first race of the season, organizers said.
“We’ll pull off whatever we can,” owner and event organizer Amanda Webb said.
Due to the size of crowd the events draw, Webb has already canceled testing day, which would have been this month.
