09/24/11 Washington Harbor hosted an exhibition/sneak preview Friday afternoon of the Air National Guard Hydroplanes, the world’s fastest racing boats capable of reaching speeds of 200mph. The event was in anticipation of the return of the President’s Cup scheduled for June 2012.  Washington, DC hosted the President’s Cup from 1922 to 1977 with a hiatus between 1941 and 1945 for World War II.
