Madison Regatta officials continue to monitor weather and water conditions, hoping to get boats on the river for racing today and Sunday.

All of the other Regatta festival events are still scheduled to go off as planned, including today's musical events, air show and fireworks.  

H1 Unlimited drivers will also participate in two autograph-signing sessions.

Heavy rain in the area this week has kept the swollen river from receding to raceable levels. With the high water come other concerns such as floating debris on the race course and a lack of space in the pit area.

"We're going to make sure it's 100 percent safe before we put these guys out there," H1 Chairman Sam Cole said.

Earlier this week, officials condensed the schedule to deal with potential high-water problems. For racing updates visit the Courier Online at
