Missing hydroplane racing this summer? Yeah, us too! For us at Roostertail Talk it isn't quite summer without hydroplane racing.  Due to the covid-19 crisis in the world most (just about all) racing has been cancelled this summer.  For those of us in the Pacific Northwest, the height of summer always fell in that magical week between the Columbia Cup and Seafair.  With both of those races cancelled there is a big void in the summer in the state of Washington.  Join us as we share some favorite moments in Columbia Cups and Seafair Regattas in years past.  I share submissions from fans, my personal favorite memories, and break down the top 5 iconic moments at each race.  Support the show (https://www.paypal.com/donate/?token=KKp4gjDWeKAYdK0hRQNhCLW_CSrqTKoKMuLy7EvqfnBBw0X5Vb-VPv0d7v1r4fnUeOVZb0&fromUL=true&country.x=US&locale.x=en_US)
