Huckleberries: Diamond Cup Regatta directors jumping ship

You may know that hydroplane races are set to return to Lake Coeur d’Alene on Labor Day weekend this year. But did you know that half of the directors of the Diamond Cup Regatta resigned from the board during the first week of February? A look at the secretary of state’s business directory reveals that four directors quit Feb. 1-4 – Art Flagan, Jim Addis, Craig Brosenne and David Bobbitt. Additionally, there’s a correction on the secretary of state’s site that shows Kiki Miller quit her post April 13, 2012. Inadvertently, Miller was still listed as a director until that Feb. 7 correction was recorded. According to the secretary of state, the remaining directors are Doug Miller, Rick Sousa and Brad Hagadone. Trouble in paradise? Star struck

Organizers hope regatta is first of many hydroplane exhibitions

Sunday was an emotional day for David Williams. As a child he spent every summer on Lake Coeur d’Alene, and he always looked forward to the hydroplane races. When the last races were held in 1968, the 11-year-old Williams stood on the shore, dreaming of one day driving one of the roaring boats. On Sunday, Williams became the first hydroplane driver to take to the lake in 42 years, when he piloted a replica of the original 1957 Miss Wahoo out onto the choppy lake for a couple of rounds during the Diamond Cup Regatta.

Hydroplanes return to Lake CdA for weekend museum fundraiser

For the first time in more than 40 years, hydroplanes capable of speeds up to 175 miles per hour will zoom around Lake Coeur d’Alene this weekend. But they will not race, as they did in the 1950s and 1960s, drawing some of the biggest crowds ever seen at an Idaho sporting event, but also generating controversy due to unruly spectators.

Events celebrate hydroplane races of past

The Diamond Cup Regatta will be held at the Coeur d’Alene Resort Friday through Aug. 22 in celebration of the Diamond Cup Unlimited Hydroplane Races that were held on Lake Coeur d’Alene from 1958 to 1968. The event will benefit the Museum of North Idaho’s building fund. The Regatta will kick off Friday at 4 p.m. with a no-host bar on the front lawn of the Coeur d’Alene Resort, with a viewing of the historic hydroplanes and an opportunity to listen to crew members discuss the boats and their history.
