Watery Wednesday - Catch Me If You Can!

Back in early October, we were at a group camping event in Winthrop, Washington. It just so happened that there were hydroplane races on the lake that weekend. They sounded like giant mosquitoes at times, but the racers were fun to watch for a bit. These weren't your typical unlimited hydroplanes, but fast little boats nonetheless.

  2. These little racers are amazingly fast. And, the drivers have no protection as the unlimited tend to have these days.
    Nice post.

    I haven't seen hydroplane races in years; but know the large ones are very loud. :)
