2022 Jet Boat Race World Championships – Race The Joe

May 27 - May 29

The 2022 Jet Boat Race World Championship will be coming to St. Maries, Idaho on Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29. As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of “Race the Joe” we have been selected as the site of the World Championships!

The festivities begin on Friday, May 27 at 6pm in Downtown St. Maries. This not to be missed event is a great opportunity to check out these spectacular racing machines, meet the drivers that operate them at high speeds through the twists and turns of the Shadowy St Joe, and pick up the latest versions of the highly coveted “Race the Joe” apparel and drinkware. 

Saturday morning, the races begin at IFI Landing speeding up towards Calder, and going up and down the river throughout the day. The Races continue on Sunday, leading up to the World Championship award ceremony on Sunday evening in St. Maries. For details, contact Shirley Ackerman at 208-596-1103 or [email protected]
