Sprint boat locals fall short in first race back

A slew of local race teams were stymied by a highly technical race course and others by mechanical breakdowns in the return of sprint boat racing to Port Angeles on July 24 — the first sprint boat race at Extreme Sports Park since September of 2019.

The Sequim-based Live Wire No. 2 team of driver Vaughan Trapp and navigator Matt Denson qualified for the 400 Class eight-cut but bounced into an island, sucked up some turf and clogged its pump, forcing the boat to effectively limp to the finish line.

Port Angeles’ Wicked Racing No. 10, driven by track co-owner Dan Morrison and navigated this time around by Sara Hopf, was eliminated in the eight-cut quarterfinals after posting the second-fastest Unlimited time in qualifications.

In the Modified Class, the 146B driven by Port Angeles’ Nicole Brown and navigated by Tina Huff made the eight-cut quarterfinal and were on tight lines through the channel, but missed a turn for a day-ending DNF.

The sprint boats return to Extreme Sports Park on Sept. 11.
