Fans and Winners React to Sunday’s 2018 Madison Regatta Races ~ In this Complete Recap, We Highlight Sunday’s Governor’s Cup, World Grand Prix and the Immediate World Around Them!

The Governor’s Cup was indeed a points race this year, unlike last year. The Regatta committee was promised six boats in the H1 race, and even though only five showed up, it became a points race regardless.

Midwest Tube Mills, the title sponsor of the Madison Regatta this year, did offer up a $5,000 bonus for a boat to try and beat the 2012 qualifying speed record of 148.837 miles an hour, but this speed was not bested.
