Camden — The second annual Camden Classics Cup, Maine's newest sailing regatta, sailed into town this past weekend.

The Camden Classics Cup, presented by Lyman-Morse, is a celebration of classic yacht sailing and boatbuilding. More than 50 yachts raced on Penobscot Bay. New this year was the Youth Regatta, featuring 48 junior sailors between the ages of 12-17.

In addition to racing, evening entertainment and maritime speakers were also part of the weekend.

LifeFlight of Maine is the beneficiary of the Camden Classics Cup event and was presented a check for $10,000 July 28.
