Registration to open for two sailing programs
Wolfeboro, NH–March 12, 2019–On April 1, registration will open for two sailing programs, which represent a collaboration between several agencies in Wolfeboro, including the New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM).
In the Sailboat Sharing Program, NHBM works with Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation and Brewster Academy to provide individuals with the opportunity to sail without “the hassle of owning a boat.”
“The program is a great way to have the luxury of using your own boat without having to worry about all the extra maintenance,” said NHBM Executive Director Martha Cummings. “This year, the program also a new three-tier system, which is dependent on the desired amount of use. We offer more options to suit individual needs.”
While varying in price, each tier includes mooring fees, maintenance and insurance.
In the Community Sailing Program, NHBM and Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation partner to teach basic sailing to adults and children. Most classes take place on Albee Beach on Lake Wentworth and.at Lake Winnipesaukee (adults).
“These classes are a great way to get people out on the water and teach them the basics of sailing,” said Cummings. “We prepare the boats, get them ready, and work with the town to hire instructors. For those who want to race, we also offer classes in sailboat racing.”
Since 2002, the Community Sailing Program has welcomed more than 2,000 students.
“These programs provide unique opportunities to not just enjoy the Lakes Region, but actually get out and experience it, too,” added Cummings.
Due to popular demand, Community Sailing is extended this year by one week and will take place from July 8 to August 23. Sailboat Sharing will occur from May 15 to October 15. Registration opens on April 1 at wolfeboronh.maxgalaxy.net.
