About the Event
This year's driving school and regatta may look a little different due to the COVID-19 restrictions, but we're going to do our best to make it available. We look forward to being back in Lock Haven in 2021.
An opportunity to drive an actual racing hydroplane boat.
The day begins in the pit area learning about the boats, the safety gear, the layout of the race course on the water, and instruction on events of the day to come. Lasting roughly one hour, veteran racers spend time with the class covering a variety of information on safely participating in your boating adventure. After class time each student gets to suit up and take a few "hot" laps in an actual racing hydroplane and receive coaching on how to make the most of their experience. At the end of the day, time and weather permitting, students run side by side with their instructor for a taste of what a weekend racing feels like.
A $50 fee gets you on the water with us. This fee covers your weekend APBA membership, onsite Safety Personnel, DVORA membership and special access to the races for the remainder of that weekend.

- “Wet Shoes” – Closed toed shoes that you will wear in the water. Old sneakers work best. No slipon’s (croc’s etc).
- Swimsuit/ shorts or long pants – You will be getting wet.
- Bottles of Water or Sports Drinks
