We are really excited about presenting the Camden Classics Cup (CCC) July 27-29. CCC is on the calendars of classic, vintage, and Spirit of Tradition boat owners looking for the best sailing in New England. Now in its second year, the event opens the classic yacht racing season in Maine and serves as the introduction to Camden Classics Week.
The event format includes two days of CRF, Spirit of Tradition and PHRF racing followed appropriately with post-race celebrations. Regatta highlights and public events include harborside viewing of the Maine Maritime Museum Parade of Sail on Saturday morning prior to racing.
Party goers and participants were all having fun for a cause. Last year, $2500 in proceeds were given to LifeFlight of Maine. This year’s regatta will only get bigger and better according to the organizers. Registration is open and the NOR, sailing instructions and calendar of 2017 events is posted to the website
The Camden Classics Cup is followed by Camden Classics Week featuring destination racing to Castine, Brooklin and outer islands, plus youth sailing and events. It all sets up a perfect week of racing, cruising, and serious camaraderie. The town of Camden and its businesses embrace the maritime theme with art displays, a classic car expo, music and film, plenty of youth events and fun for the entire family all centered on the waterfront of beautiful Camden. www.camdenclassicscup.com
