Registration is Open for the Second Annual Camden Classics Cup, to be held July 27-29, 2017.

The Camden Classics Cup (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.

Regatta highlights and public events include harborside viewing of the Maine Maritime Museum Parade of Sail on Saturday. The CCC fleet will dress ship and parade through Camden Harbor.

The event format includes 2 days of CRF, Spirit of Tradition and PHRF racing followed appropriately with post-race celebrations. Last year the fun began on Friday night with a dock party at the Rhumb Line, the new restaurant and bar at Lyman-Morse at Wayfarer. Post-race festivities peaked Saturday night with a dance party at the Camden Yacht Club. The awards ceremony wrapped up the event Saturday night with trophies and awards. Additionally, $2500 in proceeds were given to LifeFlight of Maine.

This year’s regatta promises to be 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.
