Boat race expected to return

September 6, 2013

Organizers of the Madison Regatta expect the annual hydroplane races to return next year following their first-ever cancellation due to flooding along the event's Ohio River course. Madison Regatta Inc. officials are still assessing where the organizing group stands financially after the Governor's Cup race was cancelled in July for the first time in its 63-year history after high waters filled the course with floating debris, creating unsafe racing conditions.
