Congratulations to Billy Schumacher, Jean Theoret, and the entire U-37 Miss Beacon Plumbing Hydroplane for winning the 2006 Gold Cup!
Theoret is the first non-US citizen hydroplane driver to win the Gold Cup since 1938...what a feat!!!! Quote of the weekend from Jean...."I was coming down the back straight, and I saw this cowling in the water. I thought, 'Hey, that's mine. It's red and yellow.' But the boat just drove beautifully."
