The Clarksville Hydroplane Challenge is slated for September 24-25 in Clarksville, Virginia, the weekend before the annual Harvest Days Festival.
Boats will be racing on a oval race course between two bridges. Each boat must meet standards of the American Power Boat Assocation (APBA).
Races go from 10 am to 4 pm both days around a lake. The Coast Guard plans special rules for vessels in the area those days via Executive Order.
