Before we get to the last Unlimited Hydroplane race of the season, lets pause for a moment. Coeur d’Alene has successfully wrapped up its return to Unlimited Hydroplane Racing after decades of calm water. By all reports, it has cemented itself firmly in future schedules and will no doubt be a key stop on the future racing circuit. Congratulations to Doug Miller and his entire Diamond Cup Team!
In addition to a successful return to CDA, this year’s overall activities have yet again provided for an interesting year. Some would say a very challenging one at More >
First, exciting news from Coeur d’Alene – the detailed 2013 Diamond Cup Schedule has been released! The weekend is shaping up to be a fun one, with exciting activities for all ages. (Hold that thought for a second. We’ll pick that up after the schedule and discuss why this sort of schedule is critical for the future of Unlimited Hydroplane Racing, and take a look at what else might be up Doug Miller’s sleeve for next year.)

When we last checked in with Doug Miller and his progress with the Coeur d’Alene Diamond Cup, he and the team had a blast conducting a press event to confirm “all systems GO” for Unlimited Hydroplane Racing in Northern Idaho over Labor Day, 2013.
With the momentum they enjoyed leading up to the press event, and with what has been accomplished to date, we are long overdue to provide an update on their progress.And what progress they’ve made!
With the launch of a new site and continually adding more content, they are on their way. Let’s take a look at some of that progress, shall we?New Web More >
It is always exciting to learn about the expansion of Unlimited Hydroplane Racing. It’s good for the sport; it’s good for the teams; and it’s good for the fans. Never mind just how great it is for the local economies and the communities surrounding a race site.
But when someone UnlimitedHydroplaneRacing.com can call a “friend of the site” it has special meaning.
“Is the calendar getting too full to properly support international expansion?”
This is a question that has been plaguing me lately, in spite of it being quite some time since there’s been any mention of a China expansion in the news. Even H1 hasn’t posted anything in over a year.
With the latest report of a delay in the fleet returning from Doha – a two week delay – I decided to take a look at how the calendar is filled and where the opportunities and challenges lie.
In Jimmy Buffett’s Diamond as Big as the Ritz, he calls a diamond “coal under pressure.”
It is no secret the Diamond Cup has been under some pressure to perform. In my recent post, I cited the good news announcement about the race being a fully sanctioned event. While this is not good, but GREAT news, it hasn’t come without its challenges.Coal + Pressure = Diamond Cup
In Diamond Cup Class, I shared my conversation with Doug Miller, President of the Coeur d’ Alene Diamond Cup Regatta. The “coal” that was a shaky start last year was the catalyst for Doug’s performance under pressure. The More >
It says a lot about a person when they are up to their gunnels trying to establish an Unlimited Hydroplane Race and will still take time to talk with a fan. That’s just what classy Doug Miller did recently. I can’t thank him enough.
Doug is President of the Coeur d’Alene Diamond Cup Regatta. He has been working tirelessly for over two years to bring the fastest boats in the world to beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene. The H1-sanctioned races will be held along Lakeshore Drive in the Silver Beach area Labor Day Weekend.First in a Series
