Bet you didn’t know a person in there seventies still enjoys being whipped behind a speedboat at 55mph before most of us wake up in the morning. On Saturday, June 27th, as sleepy Wolfeboro woke up to a new day, 40 or so water skiers had already assembled for the 27th Annual New Hampshire Open Water Ski Tournament.
