  1. Attended the APBA time trials at Devils Lake Or this September and have some pictures I’d like to share. Unable to find a Web site for Columbia apba. First timer but won’t be the last time. Nice group, very friendly! See you next year.

  2. Vintage Fan, Too!

    Please bring back the Vintage Hydroplanes to run between heats. It keeps the fans engaged and gives the younger fans a chance to see how the sport has evolved!

  3. Please bring back the Vintage Hydroplanes to run between the Unlimited heats. It keeps the fans involved and shows the younger folks how hydroplane racing has changed through the years!

  4. Been on the water 3 times in lake washington for the races which was awesome although the blue angels stole the show! Given it’s popularity, why is Lake Havasu not included in the schedule? There would be fans from 3 states & more reliable water conditions than San Diego! Comment?

  6. Need more people at the Folsom Lake event (more water would help too) Think snow!
    I think lower ticket prices would increase attendence. Make it up on selling sundries.
    An informal survey of people I taked with that didn’t go said the price was too high.
    Thanks look forward to a good show next year.

    • You make a good point, Peter. I can see the value in making the even more affordable and make up for it by having a lot more people enjoy the show. Thanks for following!

  7. i am can H1 advertise as the worlds fastest boats when top fuel dragboats have consistitly been from 250 mph to over 260 mph.i love boat racing but i think these guys should get due me understand this.they have developed and been useing break away capsules for quite sometime now.witch are now being used in NHRA dragsters.

    • Kenny, you raise an excellent point. I have to admit that I don’t have a lot a familiarity with drag boats, but after some research, realize they are unbelievably fast. At about 260 MPH, they do seem to the “fastest.” I’m not sure how H1 can say Unlimited Hydroplanes are the fastest boats in the world, but it is a comment used by many – including me.

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention – I’ll be sure to be more careful in the future how I refer to Unlimited Hydroplane Racing.


  8. Thanks for your article regarding the Diamond Cup Regatta in Coeur d’ Alene . I am the President / Race Director for the Regatta. This years event is Aug 31 – Sept 2 . This is my 4th year and 3rd event in bringing the boats back to Lake Coeur d’ Alene. We are finally permitted to have Races again. Please feel free to call or email anytime.
