J/80 Fleet 1


Lake Winnipesaukee is home to one of the original J/80 fleets. The J/80 is a fast, fun, 26-foot sportboat, usually sailed with a crew of 4.


We race every Thursday evening at 6pm in the Spring and Summer Series and 5:30pm in the Fall Series.  The season last from mid-May to mid-October, on Lake Winnipesaukee in Gilford, New Hampshire.

We're an active and growing fleet - many Thurday nights we see about 15 boats on the starting line! With this many boats, there's almost always room for visiting crew - just get in touch with our Fleet Captain and let us know you're looking for a ride!

Spring Series begins May 9 - - 6PM
