Historic Wolfeboro Bay
 Public Town Docks


September 15 & 16, 2023

Spectators, drivers and their crew all agree. The Wolfeboro Vintage Race Boat Regatta is one of the premiere vintage race boat regattas in the country! This year is our 23rd anniversary and 13th running of this prestigious, biennial event that draws drivers and their crew from parts of the Midwest, up and down the East Coast, and Canada.

This fun-filled two-day event takes place on beautiful, historic Wolfeboro Bay in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. The event is presented 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 a favorite for visitors to watch and for drivers to show off their spectacular vintage race boats dating from the 1920s – 1980s.

Come watch the amazing action as these historic race boats run demonstration fly-bys according to their boat class on Friday and Saturday. There’s no charge to watch and plenty of opportunities to get involved. There are also many ways to get involved in supporting this event through membership, donations, and corporate sponsorship.
