Wolfeboro, NH – April 12, 2022 – On Tuesday, May 3, the New Hampshire Boat Museum’s Back Bay Skippers Model Yacht Club returns to Wolfeboro’s Back Bay with radio-controlled model yacht races that have delighted onlookers since 2008.
“It’s so much fun to watch these boats in action and chat with the people who have built them,” said Martha Cummings, executive director of the New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM).
In addition to racing one another every Tuesday and Thursday between 1 and 4 p.m. off Bridge Falls Walking Path in downtown Wolfeboro, NHBM Back Bay Skippers teach Model Yacht Building Workshops. The next one workshop takes place July 11 - July 15 for adults and youth ages 14 and up.
“This is a very popular workshop, so you want to register before it’s too late,” added Cummings. “You don’t need the tools or anything else to register, so it’s perfect for people of varying abilities and skills to enjoy the water here in a unique way.”
Founded in 1992 by antique and classic boating enthusiasts, NHBM is committed to inspire people of all ages with an understanding of, and appreciation for, the boating heritage of New Hampshire’s fresh waterways. To learn more about model yachting, or register for the workshop. visit nhbm.org.
