U-5 speeds Saturday morning - second run


Jeff Bernard is running the U-5 FormulaBoats.com around the course right now, and has been joined by Jean Theoret in the U-37 Miss Beacon Plumbing.

  • Both boats ran untimed laps and returned to the pits.
  • Black flag is up on the course, which means the Ted Jones Memorial Race Course is now closed for unlimited hydroplanes.
  • Qualifying is complete for the Chevrolet Cup at Seafair, and the sun is starting to break through the clouds at noon, as promised by the television weather forecasters this morning.
  • The hydroplanes will return to the water this afternoon at 2:45 when heat 1A takes to the water. Heat 1B is scheduled for 3 p.m., and Heat 1C at 3:15 p.m. (All times are Pacific Daylight Time).
