GILFORD — The Lake Winnipesaukee Sailing Association sailing school, a non-profit organization, derives a portion of its funding from the generous donations of older boats by people in the Lakes Region community. Some of these boats are used in the program, while others are sold. Info This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In July LWSA received the generous donation of a 14 foot Carolina Skiff with a 25 HP outboard. The boat was donated by Tom Dalton, a Belmont cabinet maker and contractor. This sturdy boat will be used by the sailing school as a chase/rescue boat.

The LWSA Sailing School has taught thousands of local youngsters from 7 to 16 years of age to sail over the past 26 seasons. The program has five nationally certified instructors who teach in a fleet of 27 sailboats and four motorboats. See www.lwsa.org
