If you have the need for speed (and rooster tails), then the 87th Hampton Cup Regatta in Hampton, Va., is the place to be. The regatta runs Aug. 10-12 and is free for spectators.
You'll find 10 different races during the three-day span. This year's hydroplane boat race is 1.5 miles long and tests the speed of the fastest boats in all the land -- at speeds reaching close to 200 mph. Lets hope they have more than a seat belt if anything ominous happens. Scary!
