So, my Dad is part of the U-37 crew (Hydroplane Racing) and I got a call from him today in which he told me that they would be taking the race to the middle east!?!
Interesting to me. American Boat Racing Association decided to branch out during these times.
American Boat Racing Association - HomeDoha, Qatar - The American Boat Racing Association (ABRA) and the Qatar Marine Sports Federation (QMSF) have agreed to have the final race of the 2009 ABRA unlimited hydroplane season in Doha, Qatar. Ten of the fastest racing boats in the world will travel here next November for the inaugural Oryx Cup event --the ABRA/UIM World Championship -- as a result of an Agreement in Principal reached January 9 between the ABRA and the QMSF.
Apparently the Shiek (sp?) over there is very into Boat racing
Not too sure if this is "breaking" news but I thought it was an interesting place to send our guys.
If you're into Hydroplanes go ahead and throw in your cheers for the U-37 team!
