Pedal Boat Cup

We are recreating all the excitement of Seattle’s iconic hydroplane races indoors, sponsored by Ranger Tugs & Cutwater Boats! Contestants will pedal and drive human powered ‘hydroplanes’ — pedal boats on wheels — and navigate the ‘waters’ of Lumen Field Event Center, competing against other pedal boats for the fastest time around the special race course. This will be a winter celebration of the Pacific Northwest’s beloved summer boating tradition. Expect some intense racing action and great hilarity.

At stake: Daily prizes for fastest times include Seafair admission and pit passes, and the Grand Prize (drum roll please!), a Yellow Section Broadside Tie* on the Seafair Log Boom ($925 value) to enjoy the best views of hydros and the Blue Angels. Since practice makes perfect, you can enter as many times as you want, hopefully increasing your lap times and chances at prizes.

*This can be upgraded by the winner to the Red Section.
