2011 Daniel J. Murphy Jr. Memorial Regatta

A racer speeds along Lake Lenape at the 2011 Daniel J. Murphy Jr. Memorial Regatta. This year's event is Saturday and Sunday.

The 27th annual Mary Ann and Daniel J. Murphy Jr. Memorial Regatta, a two-day powerboat event, will be held Saturday and Sunday on Lake Lenape in Mays Landing.

Racing will be held from noon to 5 p.m. both days on a mile oval on the lake.

The event, which wasn't held last year, was renamed this year because Mary Ann Murphy, the widow of hydroplane racer Dan Murphy, died in 2015.

The regatta has five classes of hydroplanes, plus Jersey Speed Skiffs and pro stock ski boats.

The event is free, but a $10 pit pass, good for both days, can be purchased at the pit area on Park Road in Mays Landing.
