Gold Cup Returns - HAPO Columbia Cup - Water Follies at Columbia River

July 25, 2015 all day
The Gold Cup returns to the 2015 HAPO Columbia Cup and it will mark the 50th time Unlimited Hydroplanes have raced on the Columbia River.  This year’s event, like the inaugural in 1966, will most likely have 12 Unlimiteds in attendance.  But the modern Unlimited Hydroplane has very little in common with those first boats that churned the waters of the Columbia River.  The hydroplanes of 2015 are almost more plane than hydro.  They are thirty foot long, 7,000 pound wings that glide over the…See More

Hey Jim,

In the online photo archives under the "Sandy Ross" pictures.........there is a specific picture I'd like to know if i could get a didgital copy of to use on a business card to promote the boat restoration campaign. It's the 1979 Squire Shop pic with the mountains in the background. This is one of the clearest shots i've found of the boat and would really like to use it if possible. Let me know ASAP, as i want to order the business cards this week. Thanks.
