Boat builders hit the waters of Pleasant Lake in New London at Saturday’s cardboard boat regatta during the Elkins Fish and Game Club’s 6th annual Lake-A-Thon in New London. Eight boats took turns rowing out to a buoy and back. New Hampshire 4-H sponsored the Youth Division of the event and most of the young competitors attended a boat building workshop.
