Wolfeboro Vintage Race Boat Regatta - 2005

September 15-17, 2005

Recap & Photos !!!

From the New Hampshire Boat Museum, sponsor of the Wolfeboro Vintage Race Boat Regatta, we thank the participants, volunteers and everyone in Wolfeboro for their support and cooperation at our 2005 Vintage Race Boat Regatta.


Over 60 drivers of the American Power Boat Association’s Vintage and Historic Division, their crew and families had an outstanding time in our town. They loved the weather and water conditions, the friendly atmosphere, and the efforts put forth by all of the volunteers, business people and town folks. We appreciate that they traveled to Wolfeboro from all over the East Coast and Midwest. We even had several drivers from as far as Colorado and Arizona come to this event.


Our thanks also go out to the Selectmen who provided the town facilities, the over 100 volunteers and staff, and our corporate sponsors, who helped underwrite this fundraiser for the NH Boat Museum.


And a special thanks to all of the business people, residents and visitors who accepted the inconvenience of extra traffic, boat docking and car parking constraints, and the “occasional” noise. 


We hope everyone enjoyed this spectacular event in Wolfeboro, NH - the oldest summer resort town in America!
