Jump in your boats, unfurl your sails, and come to the Lake Wentworth Sailing Regatta. This fun event is open to sailors of all ages. You can race the intermediate or advanced course in one of four classes: Optis, Sunfish, Catamarans, and Mono Hulls.
We want to encourage young sailors to join us even if they don’t own your own sailboat. If you have completed the Racing Instructional Class offered by the Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation Department, you may reserve one of the New Hampshire Boat Museum’s Optis or Sunfish through the Town’s Instructor. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
After the races, awards will be given out and refreshments will be available. We encourage participants or their families to bring something to share, such as cookies, desserts, or soft drinks.
The Sailing Regatta is sponsored jointly by the New Hampshire Boat Museum, the Wentworth Watershed Association, and the Town of Wolfeboro. Event chair is Joe DeChairo who is available to answer questions at 569-1553.
In 1769 Governor John Wentworth built a summer mansion on the shores of Smith Pond, later would be renamed Lake Wentworth. At that time, Wentworth’s mansion was the largest home in New England.
“It has been so nice to be a part of the long sailing tradition with the Lake Wentworth Sailing Regatta. It is a different experience each time, but always fun.”
— Don Kretchmer, participant —
