Although high winds canceled unlimited, the offshore boats and F/A-18, as well as some historical boats ran.
Heat 3A had Mike Allen flip his U-7 Formulaboats.com Hydroplane on the first lap, resulting in a 1 1/2 delay.
then the winds picked up sending 2 ft rollers with white caps, putting a hold on the unlimiteds.

The pics are a mix from all weekend.

The Start of heat 3A, first lap would see Mike allen go over at the south end of the course, the second photo is the resulting damage to his boat. The Gold cup would be called due to high winds.

when it was eveident that the Unlimited would not be able to compete, the offshore boats gave the fans a show. in the first heat, Motley Crew would test the waters of the detroit river as they came victim to the famous RoosterTail turn.
