HomeStreet Bank Cup

Winning the HomeStreet Bank Cup is the goal of every team competing in the world’s fastest racing boats, and there is no better place or time to host that competition than the iconic Seafair Festival Weekend. Whether you are spectating near the shores of Lake Washington or from the Seafair Log Boom, you are in for a special treat. The excitement of hydroplanes racing at over 220 MPH is unbelievable. Not to mention you might get a little wet if you get too close!

The HomeStreet Bank Cup is an integral part of the Seafair Weekend Festival that was started in 1950. Lake Washington is the third oldest H1 Unlimited race site. This year, we are celebrating 70 years of hydroplane racing at Seafair with multiple classes of boats.

The Hydros!

H1 UNLIMITED - 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.

J-HYDROS - A fan favorite since 2019, is thrilled to be returning for 2022. If you are nine years old and dream of someday playing baseball in the World Series, you need to start playing Little League. If the Super Bowl is your goal, you head to Pee Wee Football. But what do you do if you want to race an Unlimited Hydroplane? You can start very young with J-Hydro.

J stands for “Junior” and is the entry-level class of American Power Boat Association racing. J-Hydros are a little over nine feet long, weigh 300 pounds, and have a top speed of 40 miles per hour. They use a stock 13.2 cubic inch OMC or Mercury outboard engine. To participate in J-Hydro, a driver must be between 9 and 16 years old.

VINTAGE HYDROS - Some of Seafair’s favorite vintage boats will thunder on the waters of Lake Washington again. Stay tuned for what boats will be making their 2022 Seafair return!
