70 YEARS

OF

SUMMER

Seafair, the unparalleled celebration of

Seattle’s beautiful summer and remarkable

history, turns 70 this year. With all the

attendant finery and excitement that

marks a big, round number, we also get an

opportunity to reminisce.

When it comes to Seafair, family traditions take two

paths: those that hearken back to previous generations

and those created this year, destined to move

forward in the way that traditions do. For every

grandparent wistfully looking back at the youthful

days of the past, there’s a kid who is beginning the

cycle anew. When it’s all over, when the neighborhood

festivals so unique to this grand event end,

when the Seafair royalty have been crowned, when

the Torchlight Parade has been held, when the roar

of the Blue Angels soar over us and hydroplanes

5

that cut through Lake Washington on the first

weekend in August finally fade, that kid will ask his/

her parents, in the time-honored way that traditions

begin, “Can we do this again next year?”

Such is the allure of this city-wide party, which owes

some of its heritage to events that happened 70

years ago in two upper-midwestern American cities.

When Seattle officials were looking for a way

to celebrate the Emerald City’s centennial, they


decided to hold a festival that would celebrate the

city and boost tourism. For leadership they looked

to Walter Van Camp. Van Camp was in charge of

the very successful St. Paul (MN) Winter Carnival.

Seattle lured him away in the spring of 1950 to

create a similar event here in time for the centennial

celebration in 1951.

Van Camp saw no reason to wait a year, but instead

decided to create and stage the first Seafair in the

summer of 1950. Held from August 11th to August

20th, Seafair featured parades, community events,

boat races on Green Lake, and several entertainment

events at Green Lake’s brand-new Aqua

Theatre, which was built in just 75 days and is still

partially standing today.

The first Seafair was deemed a success by everyone,

and the event immediately began to grow due in

part to the results of the 1950 Gold Cup hydroplane

race in Detroit, (MI). Gold Cup rules dictated that

the race be held on the home waters of the boat

that won it the previous year. From 1904 to 1950,

those winning boats had always been built east of

the Mississippi River.

In 1950, Seattle boat owner Stan Sayres and driver

Ted Jones teamed up to shock the boat racing

world with a win at the Gold Cup in the ironically

named “Slo-Mo-Shun IV.” Disgruntled eastern

teams chose to think that the Gold Cup was “on

loan” to Seattle for one year only. But Sayres and

his Seattle-based boats then won the race for the

next five consecutive years, establishing Seattle as

boat racing’s new capital and giving the still new

Seafair Festival a big-time finale that drew hundreds

of thousands of fans to Lake Washington each

August. When the Gold Cup eventually returned

East, a yearly Seattle stop was added to the hydroplane

racing schedule.

An air show was added to the festivities to give

fans something to watch between races. In 1955,

everyone got an unanticipated thrill when legendary

Boeing test pilot Tex Johnston performed two

barrel rolls over the lake in the new jet prototype

that would become Boeing’s 707. Johnston didn’t

tell his boss (Boeing president Bill Allen) that he

was going to take the company’s only jet and fly it

upside-down. “What do you think you were doing

up there,” Allen sputtered at Johnston later. “I was

selling the airplane,” Johnston replied.

Since 1966, the air show portion of Seafair has

featured the United States Navy Blue Angels,

who zoom across Seattle skies for several days of

practice before weekend shows above the lake that

leave spectators young and old alike standing and

pointing in slack-jawed amazement.

The noise, glamour, and spectacle of boat racing

and an air show make for a climactic weekend,

but it is the series of

dozens of local events that

truly connects Seafair to

everyone in Seattle. From

West Seattle to Greenwood,

from Ballard to Rainier

Beach, residents gather

throughout the summer

for a series of festivals and

parades that feature unique

cultural aspects of each

neighborhood.

These community events all

serve to build excitement

towards the grand Torchlight

Parade, which has been held

in downtown Seattle every year since Walter Van

Camp arrived in 1950. That first parade was held in

a small loop between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Today,

the parade is one of the largest in America and

begins under the Space Needle with a route that

goes the length of downtown before wrapping up

at the Torchlight Parade

in Pioneer Square. An estimated 250,000 spectators

line the parade route on the final weekend of July

to watch pirates, clowns, bands, drill teams, and

beautifully decorated floats.

Seattle will continue to grow, and with that growth

will come change. But even the most thriving,

vibrant communities need historic cultural anchors

to keep their past alive and to connect new

residents to the history that makes a city special.

That’s exactly what Seafair is at the grand young

age of 70 years. A festival that celebrates Seattle’s

connection to boats and airplanes, water and sky,

and the gathering of friends at neighborhood and

citywide events that are all designed to leave us

smiling and proud of the city we call home.

EVOLUTION OF THE

HYDROPLANE

When Stan Sayres drove the Slo-mo-shun IV to a

new World Water Speed Record of 160.323 mph

on Lake Washington on June 26, 1950, you could

buy a brand new Ford Crestliner for $1,624.00, and

a gallon of gas was 18 cents. There were only two

TV stations in Seattle (KING and KOMO), and if you

wanted to drive to Portland, you would have to take

Highway 99.

The Slo-mo was built almost entirely out of wood

and weighed about 4,550 pounds. The Slo-mo was

a round-nosed hydroplane that was powered by a

1710 cubic inch V-12 Allison engine originally built

for the P-38 Lightning airplanes in World War II. The

engine used a three-to-one step-up gear box to

turn a two-blade propeller at almost 12,000 RPM.

The driver sat behind the engine in a wide-open

cockpit and often wore street clothes, sometimes

20

including a tie and penny loafers. Drivers didn’t

wear seat belts for fear of drowning, but they did

wear kapok life jackets and helmets made from

fiberglass and leather.

Race boats tend to evolve quickly because racers

are always trying to go faster, and the only way

to go faster is to try something new. The biggest

change that hydroplanes went through in the

1950s was a switch away from the Allison to the

more powerful Rolls Royce Merlin that had been

used in Spitfire and P-51 Mustang airplanes during

WWII. Switching to the Merlin allowed the boats to

increase their speed by almost 10 miles per hour.

The faster speeds that came with the Merlins led

to a new and frightening type of accident called

“stuffing,” where the boat takes a nosedive at high


speed and literally stuffs its nose into the water.

To combat these accidents, boats went through

a design change in the late 1960s, when their

long, round noses were trimmed back behind the

sponsons to give the boats a nose that looked like a

“pickle fork” that was much less likely to “stuff.”

The mid-1970s saw a lot of changes to the boats

racing on Lake Washington. First, the timehonored

wood construction gave way to boats

built entirely out of aluminum and fiberglass;

eventually the aluminum was replaced by a new

aerospace product called “honeycomb aluminum.”

Honeycomb aluminum is essentially something that

looks like corrugated cardboard made out of thin

aluminum instead of paper. The next big change

was the addition of stabilizing wings on the back

of the boats. Toward the end of the decade, the

driver’s cockpits moved from behind to in front of

the engines to give the driver a smoother ride and

better visibility.

The old wooden boats from the 1950s and 60s were

prone to sinking quickly if they were damaged in an

accident. To avoid the terrible possibility of a driver

being trapped in a sinking boat, seatbelts were

not allowed. With the introduction of honeycomb

construction, sinking was no longer a concern;

so in the mid-1980s, the rules were changed to

allow seatbelts, enclosed cockpits, and onboard

compressed-air breathing system. With the new

rules, the sport became much safer. At just about

the same time that the enclosed cockpits were

introduced, the old WWII surplus Merlins and

Allison became difficult to find, so the teams

began looking toward turbine engines to replace

the old piston power plants. On August 5, 1985,

Chip Hanauer drove the turbine powered Miller

American to victory on Lake Washington to usher in

the Turbine era at Seafair. Every Seafair winner since

then has been turbine-powered.

Today’s boats are built out of a combination of

honeycomb aluminum, nomex core, and carbon

fiber. Even with these exotic composite materials,

the boats are over a ton heavier, weighing at least

6,750 pounds. Modern hydroplanes have “pickle-forked”

noses and are powered by a Lycoming

21


T-55 gas turbine from a Vietnam War

era Chinook helicopter burning Jet-A

fuel. The Lycoming engine uses a

reduction gear box to spin a 16-inch

diameter, three-bladed propeller

about 11,000 RPM. Drivers recline in

a safety capsule that is located ahead

of the engine. They are strapped

in by a six-point harness and use a

compressed-air breathing system that

allows them to keep breathing if the

boat flips. They wear a fireproof nomex

driving suit, complete with special

racing shoes and gloves. Their helmets

are lightweight but extremely strong

and take advantage of a Head And

Neck Support system known as HANS

that protects their neck and spine in the

event of a crash.

Over the last 70 years, Unlimited

Hydroplanes have gone through a

tremendous evolution. It’s exciting to

imagine what the next 70 years are

going to bring. By David Williams

SEAFAIR E350

INVITATIONAL

g

The E350 Hydros are making their first

appearance at Seafair in 2019. A popular class

in the American Power Boat Association’s

Inboard racing category, these boats pack

excitement and close competition into a

compact package. Hulls are identified by the

letter designation “E” and are required to be

between 16 and 21 feet long, with a minimum

weight of 1525 lbs, including driver. Drivers

must be at least 16 years old. Previously

known as either the 280 or the 5-liter class,

the power plant of choice in the E350s is a

350 cubic inch Chevy engine with no modifications.

Required fuel is unleaded gasoline

with no additives. Other motors allowed

include the Ford 302 and the Chevy 305 with

certain, limited modifications allowed. These

boats are capable of speeds in the 110 to 120

mph range. Many of today’s current Unlimited

Hydroplane drivers have competed in the

E350 class.

HomeStreet Bank was born in Seattle and for nearly 100 years we’ve been

J-HYDROS

If you are nine years old and dream of someday

playing baseball in the World Series, you need

to start playing Little League. If the Super Bowl

is your goal, you head to Pee Wee Football. But

what do you do if you want to race an Unlimited

Hydroplane?

You can start very young with J-Hydro. J stands for

“Junior” and is the entry-level class of American

Power Boat Association racing. J-Hydros are a little

over nine feet long, weigh 300 pounds, and have

a top speed of 40 miles per hour. They use stock

13.2 cubic inch OMC, or Mercury outboard engine.

To participate in J-Hydro, a driver must be between

the ages of 9 and 16.

39

Among the current racers, Graham Trucking’s

J. Michael Kelly, Les Schwab’s Andrew Tate, and

HomeStreet’s Jimmy Shane all started out in

J-Hydro. Last year’s newest rookie — KISW Miss

Rock’s Aaron Salmon — got his first taste of racing

with J-Hydro that he and his family built together at

the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in 2006.

We have a whole new crop of J-Drivers this year, but

pay close attention because, in just a few years, you

may see some of these boys and girls behind the

wheel of a big Unlimited Hydroplane here at Seafair.

BOEING

SEAFAIR

AIR SHOW

AUGUST 2–4 | GENESEE PARK

The Boeing Seafair Air Show has been a

favorite of Seafair Weekend since the ’60s and

gives all in Genesee park the best view of the

acrobatics accompanied by informative narratives.

The picturesque background of Lake

Washington and Mount Rainier adds to the

impressive maneuvers. You haven’t truly experienced

the air show until you have experienced

it live in Genesee Park. The Boeing Air Show is

a key part of Seafair Weekend that has helped

to shape Boeing and Seattle.

43


BOEING IS PROUD TO

SALUTE SUMMER IN

SEATTLE WITH SEAFAIR

Puget Sound is a special place for all of us at

Boeing. It’s where our founder, Bill Boeing, began

the company more than a century ago. Today, it’s

the region nearly half of our employees call home.

Our commitment to Washington state is evident

through our investments in education, employees,

infrastructure, and innovation. It is also clearly

visible in our partnerships with local sports teams,

nonprofits, and events like Seafair, which celebrates

its 70th anniversary this year.

Boeing is best known for designing and building

aircraft that allow us to connect, protect, explore,

and inspire – across our globe and beyond.

However, it’s our remarkable people that truly make

this company great, whether at the final assembly

44

facilities in Everett and Renton, our Fabrication sites

in Auburn and Frederickson, or the many Boeing

sites in between.

We work to ensure Boeing employees are fully

involved in the Seafair experience. Boeing

employees receive free entry to Seafair every

summer, and we are very proud that members of

our Boeing Veteran Engagement Team (BVET) skillfully

guide the Blue Angel balloon during the annual

Torchlight Parade. Nearly 15% of Boeing employees

are military veterans.

The tens of thousands of Boeing employees who

live and work in Washington take our communities

seriously and work hard to ensure our Puget

Sound home remains strong and healthy. Whether


mentoring local students or pitching in at nearby

food banks, Boeing is proud of these values and

accomplishments, and is honored to match up to

$10,000 in charitable dollars for each employee

each year.

We are also pleased to invite our partner

Washington FIRST Robotics to highlight their

students and skills in our Genesee Park tent during

Seafair Weekend. Be sure to stop by and learn

about the FIRST teams near you!

Investing in Puget Sound partners and events like

Seafair shapes our shared success, which is how we

build a sound future together.

US ARMY

GOLDEN

KNIGHTS

In 1959, 19 Airborne Soldiers from various military

units formed the Strategic Army Command

Parachute Team (STRAC). Two years later, the

Department of Defense announced that the STRAC

team would become the United States Army

Parachute Team.

By 1962, the team earned the nickname the

“Golden Knights.” “Golden” signified the gold

medals the team had won while “Knights” alluded

to the team’s ambition to conquer the skies.

Since then, the Golden Knights have conducted

more than 16,000 shows in 50 states and 48

countries, reaching an average of 60,000 people

per show. The team has earned the U.S. Army

2,148 Gold, 1,117 Silver, and 693 Bronze medals

in national and international competition. Team

members have also broken 348 world records.

The team is composed of approximately 95 men

and women, making up four parachute units, an

aviation unit, and a home office. The demonstration

team, which uses five dedicated aircraft, perform

at more than 100 events per year. The tandem

section is known for taking soldiers, celebrities, and

heads of state on jumps; the competition section

focuses on winning national and international

skydiving events.

US NAVY

BLUE

ANGELS

It cannot truly be summer in Seattle without the

sound of the Blue Angels flying over head. These

impressive planes and pilots practice over the city

during the week leading up to Seafair Weekend,

creating anticipation for the upcoming festivities.

The mission of the United States Navy Flight

Demonstration Squadron is to showcase the pride

and professionalism of the United States Navy and

Marine Corps by inspiring a culture of excellence

and service to country through demonstrations and

community outreach. The Blue Angels are Boeing

F/A-18 aircrafts that can fly at speeds approaching

700 mph. The squadron’s performances will include:

a four-group performance with intricate choreography

and graceful movements showing their

capabilities; two solo pilots featuring fast-paced and

impressive movements; and their final performance

that includes all six aircrafts showcasing the pinnacle

of precision flying.

AEROBATIC

PLANES

POWER ADDICTION AIRSHOWS 70

PRESENTED BY SAFEWAY ALBERTSONS

At the age of eight, Brad Wursten had already

started to realize his lifelong dream of flying

airplanes. Brad received his commercial license at 25.

At 26, his new dream was to become an aerobatic

airplane pilot. He was trained by the world-renowned

pilot, Wayne Handley. We will see Brad fly in one of

the most highly sophisticated airplanes in the world,

the MXS-R, made by MX Aircraft.

LUCAS OIL 70

Mike Wiskus’ passion for aviation started when he

was 10, when his Dad took him to his first air show.

He went on to earn his pilot’s license on his 17th

birthday. Forty years later, Mike has accumulated

more than 25,000 flight hours and has qualified

to fly more than 40 aircraft. He keeps a very busy

schedule as a full-time air show pilot flying the

Lucas Oil stunt plane April through November.

PBY CATALINA 70

It began with a meeting of WWII PBY veterans and

their wives in 1998. By 1999, the PBY Memorial

Association was incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)

(3) organization. In 2000, the group started discussions

regarding a museum, searching for an airplane

and looking for office space and storage. In 2003,

an anonymous donor makes their dream a reality

by donating an abandoned gas station to become

the PBY Memorial Foundation Museum that opened

in 2004.

USCG - MH-65 SAR DEMO FROM

AIR STATION PORT ANGELES 70

The H-65 helicopter — the Coast Guard’s most

widely used aircraft — is certified for operation

in all-weather and night-time operations, except

in icy conditions. The H-65 is the primary Coast

Guard aircraft used aboard certified cutters during

deployments. FLIR, a heads-up display (HUD), and

other avionics upgrades are being installed aboard

the H-65 as part of the ongoing conversion-sustainment

initiative to sustain the airframe for the

foreseeable future.

SEAFAIR FOUNDATION

The Seafair Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit

organization, is the charitable partner of the

Seafair Festival whose mission is to empower

future leaders and connect our communities

through educational and cultural experiences.

The Seafair Foundation has a visible, positive,

and lasting impact in the Puget Sound region

by sustaining cultural celebration, supporting

individuals and organizations that serve our

region, and creating inspiring experiences and

opportunities for young leaders.

Seafair Ambassador Program

Local area high-school sophomores and juniors are

selected from an application essay on community

involvement and personal interviews. Selected

students then represent Seafair throughout the year

through a variety of unique community participation

opportunities.

Boeing Seafair Community Events

Seafair believes in celebrating the traditions of our

region, resources, and residents. We are proud to

support 32 local parades and festivals representing

ethnic, geographic, and other interests across the

region.

76 Seafair Holiday Cruise

This event takes place on the waters of Lake Union

and Lake Washington as independent boaters and

charter operators volunteer their boats, crews, and

time to host over 1500 intellectually disabled guests

to a holiday parade of boats.

Scholarship Program for Women

Under development - set to launch late 2019

The objective of the Seafair Foundation’s Women

in Leadership Program is to provide support,

encouragement, and leadership opportunities for

young women in college. The program will provide

networking and real-world experience to help

young women, including minorities and those who

would not otherwise have access to such opportunities,

achieve at a high level and prepare to be

leaders in the workforce. More information will

become available later 2019.

SEAFAIR ROYALTY

Seafair Royalty has been integral to Seafair Festival

since its start 70 years ago. Miss Seafair was originally

like a celebrity with her movements and outfits

intensely documented in the local magazines. As

Seafair and Seattle have grown and changed, so has

the role of the Seafair Royalty. In 2000, the Royalty

Program was updated to crown one man as King

Neptune and one woman as Queen Alcyone. This

outstanding couple is chosen based on their philanthropic

contributions to the Puget Sound region

and ability to inspire the communities in which they

live. In the ’50s, Miss Seafair was selected based

on her poise and wholesomeness. Currently, she

is selected based on her academic abilities, public

speaking skills, and community service.

The 2019 Miss Seafair Andrea Diaz was born in

Puerto Rico but grew up in Olympia, WA. She is

currently a double major in criminal justice with an

emphasis in social justice, and cultural studies at

Seattle Pacific University. She is a Catalyst Education

programmer and leads SPU’s quarterly discussion

series, where they discuss race, privilege, and

reconciliation.

King Neptune is an important part of Seafair as it

recognizes the people that help to make Seattle

great. Past kings include Sonics great Slick Watts

and past Seahawks Quarterback Warren Moon.

This year, Richard Gray is Seafair’s King Neptune.

As an award-winning actor and composer, Rich is

very involved in the theater scene in Seattle and has

performed in many Seattle-based theaters including

the 5th Avenue Theater, the ACT, the Seattle

Children’s Theater, and ArtsWest.

The Seafair Queen Alcyone has always been a

woman of distinction that has contributed greatly to

the Seattle community. Past queens have included

former First Lady of WA Mona Locke and former

WA State Governor Christine Gregoire. Our current

Queen Alcyone, Kim Holcomb, has a degree in

political science from University of California,

Riverside and a Master’s degree in broadcast journalism

from Boston University. Kim has been a

KING TV Evening entertainment reporter for over

10 years, covering everything from the Seahawks’

victory parade to Seattle’s Tomato Battle. Kim is a

member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association,

she has won six Regional Emmy Awards, and won

an Edward R Murrow Award for writing.
