Hello boat racing fans! Seattle Drag & Ski has set up a display at this year's Lacey S.T.E.M. Fair & Grand Prix Electric Car Races on Saturday, May 2nd. What does boat racing have to do with this you ask? S.T.E.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math. What better way to get kids excited about these subjects than to show them the cool things they could build (RACE BOATS!) using these skills! Jeff Gibson has agreed to help out, and we'll be showing off his engineering marvel of a capsule flat bottom along with Aaron Murk's J hydro. Here's a link to the webpage: http://www.ci.lacey.wa.us/…/the-c…/arts-and-events/stem-fair

 The Racers Prayer...

Lord, I pray as I race today keep me safe along my way. Not only me, but the others too, as they perform the jobs they do. I know God, that in every race, I the driver must set the pace. Let me not desire more speed, warp my judgement and turn into greed From green to checkers guide me thru. Give me strength to know what to do. Remind me often in the race of life, how to cope with all the strife. Help me accept the wins I may receive, and all the defeats most graciously. Ride with me, don't allow me to lag. Guide me all the way to the checkered flag.
Amen...(。-_-。)

Welcome to the New Seattle Drag & Ski Sprint Boat Association web site.

Our Club is a very diverse Club.  Our membership covers entry level Flat Bottoms (Sportsman Entry) to top level Flats (The "K-Boats" ); the smallest hydroplanes  (1 Liters) to the largest & fastest of the hydroplanes (The Unlimiteds); a new and very active group known as the Vintage Racers; and our Safety & Rescue members (without whom the sport of organized boat racing could not happen). Rounding out our membership are folks who simply enjoy boat racing so much they become worker bees on our racing weekends; helping as crew members, race committee staff, and safety and teardown!
