Sheikh Hassan bin Jabor Al-Thani of Qatar is a Class 1 series (offshore) boat driver in Europe and the driving force behind bringing the Unlimited Hydroplanes to Qatar for the UIM World Championship later this year.

At Seafair, Sheikh Hassan got a chance to get out on the race course in the newly reconstructed U-77 Miss Wahoo.

Afterwards, he said:  "It's a much different kind of ride than my race boat."
