Albert Lee Appliance Cup

Albert Lee Appliance Cup

The Albert Lee Appliance Cup is an H1 Unlimited hydroplane boat race held annually at Seafair Weekend Festival. This year it is held August 4-6 at Genesee Park on Lake Washington. The race is an integral part of Seafair festival that was started in 1950. Seattle is the third oldest Unlimited race site.

H1 Unlimited is an American Unlimited Hydroplane racing league that is sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association (APBA). A hydroplane (or hydro, or thunderboat) is a very specific type of motorboat used exclusively for racing. One of the unique characteristics about hydroplanes is that they only use the water they're on for propulsion and steering (not for flotation) - when going at full speed they are primarily held aloft by a principle of fluid dynamics known as "planing", with only a tiny fraction of their hull actually touching the water.
