The South Shore Outboard Association (SSOA) is one of the most storied and successful powerboat racing clubs in North America. Started over 60 years ago by a small group of hydroplane racing enthusiast on the South Shore of Massachusetts, the club quickly grew into an organization respected not only for the success of the racers who were members, but also for its successes in conducting well run and exciting race events. Over the years the SSOA has excelled at continuing this tradition and is still considered one of the premier outboard racing clubs in America.

Since its inception, SSOA drivers have won over 100 National, North American and World Championships and in 2017 will have several current or past National Championship drivers counted among its rolls and competing at its events. More importantly, in its 60+ years, SSOA has produced over 1000 race events throughout New England. The experience and dedication of its race event staff is second to none.
