MADISON, Ind. (AP) - Madison Regatta fans will be able to camp along the Ohio River for the first time in decades during next month’s hydroplane races.

Regatta organizers say campsites will be available on both sides of the Madison-Milton Bridge during the July 3-5 races.

The Madison Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1TBNAdx ) that organizers expect the 60 riverside spots costing $100 each to go quickly in the city about 40 miles northeast of Louisville, Kentucky.

Madison Regatta Treasurer Crystal McHargue says fans will have a chance from the campsites for up-close looks as the boats go by.

This season’s race course has been extended to 2.5 miles and will run beneath the bridge, with the camping area situated as the boats begin their run down the front stretch.
