Last Saturday I attended Syracuse Hydrofest featuring Inboard Hydroplane racing. All boats use propellers with the Grand Prix class reaching speeds up to 175 miles per hour (282 kilometers per hour). The day was rainy and grey causing the day to start late and ending early after only a few races due to visibility and a serious accident. However, I did get to go out on one of the turn boats on the course and bring back a few photos I’d like to share with you here.
