The 2014 Regatta will begin on Friday, August 29 when the vintage raceboats and hydroplanes begin to arrive in Wheeling. Our Regatta registration trailer opens at 9:00 AM at the top of Heritage Port and remains open until 5:00 PM. The pits are open on Friday so if you'd like to see the vintage boats up close and have great chances to talk to the drivers, join us in Heritage Port any time on Friday.

Our opening ceremonies begin at 9:15 AM on Saturday and Sunday. The first heats of hydroplanes roar away from the dock at 10:00 AM. If you are anywhere in Wheeling and begin to hear a loud roar, you are probably hearing our raceboats! Heats will continue until noon at which time our course is closed for river traffic to come through. The heats begin again at 2:00 PM and last until 6:00 PM.

Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming events.
