2015 Vintage Race Boat Regatta
September 18th & 19th
Wolfeboro Town Docks & Cate Park
Free and open to the Public
Approximately 60 vintage boats representing several classes from small outboards to Grand Prix hydroplanes will run heats in groups on a one mile oval shaped course throughout the day Friday and Saturday. Other classes of boats include Jersey Skiffs and Gold Cup racing boats will also run. The sights and sounds of these great boats running are enjoyed by several thousand people at the Wolfeboro Public Docks. There is no admission charge to view the heats on Friday and Saturday.
Spectator participation is encouraged. The New Hampshire Boat Museum sells rides that can be taken between heats on various race boats with their drivers. The Museum also sells pit passes to the “Hot Pits” both days. Funds raised help support the education programs and exhibits of the NHBM. Spectators are also welcome to come to all the evening events to meet the drivers as well as support the New Hampshire Boat Museum during the Regatta including a Wednesday night reception at Mueller/McLean Boat Works, Thursday night welcome reception at the Wolfetrap Bar and Grill, Friday night cocktails at the Museum, and Saturday night Awards Ceremony dinner.
Island Living on New Hampshire Chronicle
Ever wonder what living on an island on Lake Winnipesaukee is like? New Hampshire Chronicle visited with 3 families who own and live on islands during the summer months. The museum’s Trustee Rick Kourian graciously drove the camera crew to each island and Trustee Tom Bell and his wife Roseanne are the owners of the first island visited, Littlest Mud Island. We are thankful for their help putting this story together for New Hampshire Chronicle.
