Our Cruising Chair Bill Buchholz is thinking that there just may be a Winni Hardway attempt coming up. He reports that Lee Spiller plans to round up a scouting team on Sunday to check the lake for Hard Way possibilities. Skate sailors have been touring the lake recently and report pretty good conditions, with only one major reef.Refresh your memories on the rules and the fun from past runs. We’ll update the minute we get the report.

Sure will. Things are looking good but it will likely be pretty spontaneous. There is sailing but the full hardway is in question.

I have the Winnipesaukee the Hard Way silver loving cup. The cup has information about the race and the base is engraved with names of those who have completed the feat. It’s in a trophy case at Brewster Academy. If you would like to see or have it, let me know. I do have photos but see no option to post.
Also, I believe that the distance is closer to 17 miles one way.
