(June 2009) – Madison Regatta race fans are getting excited about the upcoming Unlimited hydroplane season, which opens July 3-4 at Madison.
This year, the community-owned Oh Boy!Oberto-Miss Madison will proudly wear the U-1 on its helm. For the first time in its 48-year history, the Oh Boy! Oberto-Miss Madison (U-6) finished first in National High Points for Unlimited hydroplanes for the 2008 season. This entitles the team to carry the coveted U-1 designation throughout the 2009 racing season.
The week prior to the race in Madison is filled with activities that range from a waterball competition among firefighters to a street dance for visitors and residents.
