Don't let the rain delay get you down at the Daytona 500. (BTW hydroplane racing is a water sport and wouldn't have a delay).

Welcome to the forty-ninth episode of Roostertail Talk. In this episode I talked with Jon Osterberg. Jon is a long time hydro fan, hydroplane historian, crew member on Dixon Smith's current restored Miss Bardahl and author. Jon recently released an updated version of his book “Dragon Days”, a book all about the 3rd Miss Bardahl hydroplane, hydroplane racing in the 1960s and what the boat went through its restoration process. In the interview I used a new computer, so my audio doesn’t come across as clear, but otherwise it was a great interview with Jon! Check out his new book: Dragon Days book on Amazon

Missing hydroplane racing this summer? Yeah, us too! For us at Roostertail Talk it isn't quite summer without hydroplane racing. Due to the covid-19 crisis in the world most (just about all) racing has been cancelled this summer. For those of us in the Pacific Northwest, the height of summer always fell in that magical week between the Columbia Cup and Seafair. With both of those races cancelled there is a big void in the summer in the state of Washington. Join us as we share some favorite moments in Columbia Cups and Seafair Regattas in years past. I share submissions from fans, my personal favorite memories, and break down the top 5 iconic moments at each race.
