Ocean City

This week in OC: June 5-11, 2015

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

After a rainy, dreary week, it appears we will see clear skies and mild temperatures here in Ocean City, Md this weekend. If you want to enjoy the beach before it gets too hot, or too crowded, this week is the perfect time for a spontaneous trip. For those of you that are coming to see us this weekend, here are some of the highlights of things to do:

– This weekend is the return of the 19th Annual Mako Tournament. Started in 1996 and synonymous with the start of the season each year, Mako Mania attracts talented anglers hoping to land a prize winning mako shark, bluefish, or thresher shark. The event takes place Friday-Sunday with daily weigh ins at Bahia Marina each day. Contact 410-289-7438 or fish@bahiamarina.com for more information.

– Sharing Ocean City with the best fishermen from around the region this weekend will be some of the best surfers from around the country as the 15th Annual Longboard Team Challenge also returns this weekend. Hosted by Castle in the Sand, this weekend long event will see teams from as far away as California compete to see who has the best longboard skills. The event kicks off with a Legends party on Friday at Barn 34 (6:30 start time) and continues all weekend on the beach in front of Castle in the Sand.
