Wolfeboro Vintage Race Boat Regatta to feature special heat for ‘Miss America VII’

WOLFEBORO — The New Hampshire Boat Museum's 8th biennial Wolfeboro Vintage Race Boat Regatta will be held in Wolfeboro Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee September 13-14.

The Regatta committee is pleased to report that boats from as far away as Michigan, Mississippi, Florida and Canada will be attending this year. The event takes place at the Wolfeboro Town Docks and there is no charge to watch the heats.

Opening ceremonies will begin at 8 a.m. with the historic triple cockpits. This will be followed by a special heat reserved for the Miss America VII owned by Geoffrey Magnuson.

The original Miss America VII was one of the Miss America race boats financed and raced by Gar Wood and designed by Napoleon "Nap" Lisee. The race boat was built and raced in 1928. At her fastest she was timed at 92.8 m.p.h., a record for that year. The boat raced again in 1929. It was in a race in Venice, Italy, that Miss America VII met her demise when she crashed, presumably after hitting debris in the water.

Geoffrey Magnuson's boat is an exact replica of the famed Miss America VII and it is an honor for the Vintage Race Boat Regatta to again host this race boat after a ten year hiatus.

In addition to this boat, viewers will see vintage outboards, Jersey Speed Skiffs, flatbottoms, Gold Cup racers, and small, mid and large size hydros run heats throughout both days.

This year's Regatta is sponsored by the following museum supporters: Citizen's Bank, Shep Brown's Boat Basin, Watermark Construction, the Alton Bay Yacht Club, the J. Willard Marriott Jr. Foundation, Coco Engineering, Bradley Hardware, Lakes Region Restoration, Avery Insurance, NAPA - Wolfeboro Auto Parts, HK Powersports, Wolfeboro Car Wash and Executive Detail, Knight Security, Brock's Lumber, Sal's Advanced Automotive, Three Sisters' Country Store, and two anonymous donors.

In-kind support is being provided by the Wolfeboro Inn, Dive Winnipesaukee, Andrews Marine Service, Wolfetrap Grill, and Reliable Crane Service.
