Are you ready to attend Lake Tahoe’s world-renown boating event? The Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance Wooden Boat Show takes place this weekend, August 10-11. This event is regarded nationally as the premier event for maritime enthusiasts. Heading into its 39th year, the Foundation has selected ‘Gar Wood – the Gentleman’s Runabout’ as the featured Marque Class. These luxurious and powerful “aristocrats of motorboats” were first introduced in 1922 by inventor, industrialist and record-setting speedboat racer Garfield A. Wood and are a fan favorite. The Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance showcases from 75 to 110 antique boats each year and draws more than 5,000 participants and visitors.
Here are some photos from last year’s Concours d’Elegance.
