CAMDEN —The sun shined down on Camden Harbor Saturday, July 30, as 91 crafts vied for ocean supremacy in the sixth-annual 2022 Camden Classics Cup.

The three day event began Thursday, July 28, with registration and an Owners and Captains Reception, as the racing began Friday, July 29, with the Camden Classics Cup fleet and Youth Regatta

“The wind kind of dropped out on Friday, but Saturday was awesome sailing,” said Event Director Holly Paterson. “Everybody loved (the event) on the water and on the shore.”

Saturday morning brought with it the parade of sail, as the crafts made their way through Camden’s Inner Harbor as spectators looked on from Lyman-Morse, the Public Landing and the Yacht Club.

The overall winner of the Cup was Leaf, which competed in the “Vintage 2” category.

Other winners include, with vessel name and category in parenthesis: Zemphira (Spirit of Tradition); Palawan (Classic 1); The Hawk (Modern Classic); Rebecca of Vineyard Haven (Schooner and Gaff); Siren (Vintage 1); Snow Falcon (Concordia); Frolic (Daysailer); Finezza Veloce (J/42); Akai (J/46); Tamarack (PHRF Spinnaker); Legacy (PHRF Cruising 1); and Moondance (PHRF Cruising 2).

Palawan was the overall winner of the 2021 Camden Classics Cup.

“I think it was a huge success,” Paterson said. “It was great the town of Camden was so welcoming and we love all the community support for the Camden Classics Cup and Lyman-Morse.”

Saturday also featured 21 classic cars from around Maine as the Parade of Sail went through.
