The Tri-City Water Follies is delighted to announce that the HAPO Columbia Cup/Over the River Air Show will be adding a new class of hydroplane to its lineup of exciting boat racing on the Columbia River July 29-31. New to the Tri-Cities this summer will be the 5-liter hydroplanes, which replace the small 1-liters that have run here in years past.
“These are bigger and faster race boats, but they are still small enough to take the corners very fast. They are a lot of fun to watch”, said Kathy Powell.
The Tri-City Water Follies is also happy to announce that The Washington National Guard is once again an official sponsor, this year of the 5-liter hydroplane races. “Anytime you can be associated with the National Guard, you bring an added credibility and sense of patriotism to your event. We are fortunate to once again have them as part of our sponsorship team”, said Powell.
