Boating In New Hampshire
Certificate Required
(Click on Link to the right for more information)
Lake Winnipesaukee is a very large Lake ... over 40,000 acres... Boating on "Winnie" is not like
putting around on the local Pond... "Winnie"can be more like the Ocean than a Lake, and can
be a crowded, frustrating, and even a dangerous place, especially on Summer weekends...
Knowledge of the Lake, and the rules for safe and courteous boating, coupled with good
boating skills and common sense, are all necessities when boating on "Winnie"... A good chart,
available at all marinas and most stores in the area, along with the completion of the required
N.H. Boating Course (linked above), should give you the basics for enjoying our wonderful Lake
Winnipesaukee to the fullest...

Summer Season on Lake Winnipesaukee actually starts in mid April... with an event called "Ice Out"... The Ice
has melted and broken into pieces small enough to clear the major water routes on the Big Lake... It is the
signal that Winter has officially ended, and limited Summertime activities can now begin...
First to be seen are the Fishermen, who seem to be pushing the Ice down the lake as they crowd the Ice
Flows with their small boats....

Summer Season ends in Mid to late October... when the Snowbirds have closed their Summer homes and
follow the birds south.. The Leaf Peepers have left ... The Renters have left.. and the "Wimpy Type"
Flatlanders have closed their Camp... and left us with peace and quiet to enjoy our Winter Nests...
Yes.... We will probably travel a bit South for a few weeks in the months of January thru March... but for the
most part, we remain to enjoy the quiet beauty of Winter, and the unique activities it has to offer...

For now... We enjoy the SUMMER !!uee
