Most of the H1 Unlimited hydroplane fleet calls Seattle home. The Emerald City has hosted the Unlimiteds every year since 1951. Lou Fageol won the very first Seattle race driving Stan Sayres' SLO-MO-SHUN V.
Seattle is the third oldest Unlimited race site. In terms of consecutive years of participation, only the Detroit Gold Cup and the Madison Regatta have seniority over Seattle.
Jean Theoret won the 2006 Seafair Cup with Billy Schumacher's MISS BEACON PLUMBING. Theoret also won the 2005 Sefair Cup with the same boat when it raced as Bill Wurster's LLUMAR WINDOW FILM.
