NOTE: Please keep in mind that spectators can enjoy the races for FREE. However, if having the best vantage point for viewing the races is what’s most important to you, you may want to consider purchasing VIP race passes to view the action from strategic locations at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort or the Hyatt Regency. A VIP race lanyard also provides admission to special parties, FREE Jolley Trolley rides, FREE admission to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure, and FREE sailboat rides and paddleboard demos at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center. VIP admission will cost $100/adult, $25/child (age 16 and younger).
Even Better! Are you planning on enjoying the races all weekend long? On Saturday, September 29, catch the fireworks. They will probably begin between 8:30-9 p.m. and are FREE for spectators in the area around Pier 60. On Saturday the Baystar Race Village will also include a Seafood Festival, where guests can also enjoy seafood from local restaurants.
