Have you ever heard of this? It's pretty new to me.

Hydroplane boat racing is becoming more and more popular in Maine and on lakes around New England in the summer. The videos look crazy! Would you ever try something like this?

Check out these racing videos... they were shot a few summers ago in Standish.

There are races scheduled this weekend on Watchic Lake in Standish. May 20 (Friday) is a testing day, and races will happen all day on Saturday, May 21.

According to the American Power Boat Association, there are several different types of hydro racing. Interested? Hit up their website here.
