Ever wonder what it’s like to take a fast turn around the course in a race boat? During the Wolfeboro Vintage Race Boat Regatta you can fulfill your dreams by purchasing a ride in some of the participating race boats. Special heats have been scheduled to give you that opportunity.

Many of the race boat drivers donate their time and resources to provide rides around the course in one of their amazing, and very exciting, vintage boats. All proceeds from the sale of these rides go to help the New Hampshire Boat Museum and their costs of the Regatta.

All rides are governed by the rules of the American Power Boat Association:

  • Must be 21 years or older to participate
  • Must wear an approved safety floatation vest and helmet (supplied)
  • Must wear long sleeves and pants (supplied if you do not have)
  • Must sign a waiver
  • Must receive a safety briefing

Book Your Ride
Only a limited number are offered each day. To book, visit the Charity Rides Tent in Cate Park just past the gazebo.
We encourage you to book early in the day! Costs range from $300-$500 per ride depending on boat.


We are grateful to the following sponsors that help to make this event successful!
