Watch the 1931 Gold Cup Speedboat Race on Lake Montauk

In honor of throwback Thursday, we present to you the annual speedboat Gold Cup race on Lake Montauk, Saturday, August 15, 1931. MotorBoating magazine, August 1931, notes that "Montauk offers excellent facilities for a race as important as the Gold Cup classic." (MotorBoating only recently ceased publication, in 2011.) Two thoughts: more logos should involve anchors, and anyone naming a new yacht should consider "Hotsy Totsy."
