Some kind words from Bill & Judy Fisk:



To all those involved in any way with last weekends NH Vintage Race Boat Regatta, it was the best organized Vintage Race Boat event we have ever been to, bar none !!!

Many, many thanks, you should all be very proud. I hope you enjoyed hearing all the noise and seeing the rooster-tails from our race boats. They can cause "goose bumps" I was told at the Saturday cookout. Look forward to returning again next year, we had a Blast !!!!
