Many of the local Windjammers are also expected to participate and will be arriving in Camden and Rockland harbors that weekend as well.
Super yachts, classic yachts, performance racers, picnic boats and lobster yachts are all invited to enter and compete in this inaugural event. Course information and regulations can be found here.
Maine’s vast coast, scenery, and boating enthusiasm makes it the perfect place for an event of this kind and the Mid Coast Region of the state is the ideal location with its Windjammer history, boating culture and spectacular viewing spots.
With the geographic layout of the area, event spectators will be able to see all of the action from the land or can catch spectator-assigned yachts to see the races from the sea.
