CAMDEN — Camden-based schooner captain Aaron Lincoln will answer questions and recall his seagoing adventures during a free Camden Yacht Club Summer Seminar at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17.
Lincoln has logged more than 100,000 miles of sailing. More than half of those miles have been on Penobscot Bay. He has plenty of tales to share about wild storms, fascinating passengers, wildlife encounters, creative problem solving, history, and more. Lincoln, captain and owner of the Schooner Olad and the Cutter Owl, was born in Rockland and raised in Union. He can trace his Maine roots through multiple generations back to the 1700s.

A sailor since age 23, Lincoln has boated extensively along the Atlantic seaboard and the Caribbean. Before acquiring the Olad in 2005, he worked on many Maine-based vessels, including North Wind, Liberty, Liberty Clipper, Roseway, White Hawk, and the Penobscot Pilot.

The Yacht Club, located at 68 Bay View St., hosts the nonprofit Camden Area Youth Seamanship Program, which is open to all young people in the community. CASYP’s scholarship program makes its lessons affordable to all.

Donations for CAYSP scholarships will be gratefully accepted at the seminar. Email cyc@camdenyachtclub.org for more information. Complete details about this season’s Sunset Seminars are available at camdenyachtclub.org/sunset-seminars.
