The 2019 HAPO Columbia Cup will mark the 54th time Unlimited Hydroplanes have raced on the Columbia River. H1 Unlimited hydroplanes are the fastest racing boats.  With deep history, the 116-year-old sport's majority of hydroplanes are powered by turbine-engines that produce 3,000 horsepower, allowing the H1 Unlimited hydroplanes to reach speeds of nearly 200 mph, producing a massive 60-foot tall, 300-foot long wall of water called a rooster tail behind them.
