The Tamworth Yacht Club's Great River Boat Race

The Tamworth Visitors Council is excited to announce the first annual Tamworth Yacht Club (TYC) Great River Boat Race on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 2:30pm. Sailors will compete for prizes and the honorary title of TYC Commodore for the 2018 season.

Landlubbers and sea-farers - kids of all ages - are invited to build and customize an 8” pine wooden model sailboat and compete in the Swift River course that passes through the center of town. Each registrant will also receive either a captain's or sailor hat, the perfect accessory for your little mariner. The event is designed to encourage children and their older sailing “partners” to learn hands on skills and build memories of time spent together in the great NH outdoors.  The awards ceremony will take place at the finish line behind the Distillery, with food available for purchase from the White Gates Farm Pizza Wagon, and The Farmstand.

Come aboard, join your fellow salty sailors and cheer on the flotilla of bobbing boats as they cross the finish line. Space is limited to 150 boats,  so don't get left behind at the starting line, and preorder your $39.95 boat kit now on the website.

You could win one of many items from local vendors as well as cash prizes including: $300.00 for 1st place, $200.00 for 2nd and $100.00 for the 3rd boat to cross the finish line.

Whatever floats your boat…Tamworth has something for you!
