The 2015 Vintage Race Boat Regatta will take place September 17, 18, and 19 in beautiful, historic Wolfeboro Bay in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. The event is organized by the New Hampshire Boat Museum and is sanctioned by the Vintage and Historic Division of the American Power Boat Association (APBA). This biennial event is now in its fourteenth year and is heavily attended by the public. It is also one of the premier events of the APBA Vintage Circuit.
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 the Museum, Thursday night welcome reception at the Wolfetrap Bar and Grill, Friday night cruise, and Saturday night Awards Ceremony dinner.
