Past Wolfeboro Participants


A major stop on the APBA Vintage Race Boat Circuit

The past will come alive as the vintage race boats of bygone eras return to Wolfeboro, for our seventh biennial Wolfeboro Vintage Race Boat Regatta. Wolfeboro is now a major stop on the APBA Vintage Race Boat Circuit, and this summer's regatta expands to 4 full days, with over 60 vintage race boats running demonstration laps on a 1 mile oval course on beautiful Wolfeboro Bay. In addition to seeing and hearing these unique and beautiful boats run, spectators are invited to view them close-up in the pit area at the town docks between 9 and 4 on both Friday and Saturday.


This year our Wolfeboro vintage event is again scheduled for the weekend after the Buffalo vintage regatta and as many of you know, our Wolfeboro vintage regatta is held every other year, alternating with the Clayton. With our beloved NH Boat Museum providing the support and volunteer base, Wolfeboro is well known for running on a tight, published regatta heat schedule, running vintage heats every half hour for two full days. All the vintage race boats are run at least twice a day, so if you wanna see lots of vintage race boats running some pretty hot laps, you just gotta come to Wolfeboro in 2011 !!!

This is an APBA sanctioned vintage regatta featuring Vintage & Historic race boats. We want to run large heats of all vintage classes, including outboards, small hydros, mid-hydros, large hydros, runabouts, flatbottoms, skiffs, speedsters, gold cuppers, and large triple cockpit runabouts. The Invitation/Registration Packets were mailed in January to all past participants at Wolfeboro, and reminders were mailed in May. We are now posting each registered entry as received, so please check back often and watch as the Regatta heats of vintage race boats fill out nicely. If you have not participated at Wolfeboro yet, but want to join all the fun, please contact Bill John at John1948@metrocast.net
