Cruising & Racing

Camden Yacht Club welcomes visiting cruising and/or racing yachts. Visitors can reserve itinerant moorings or inner harbor floats when available. Launch service, at a small fee, will take visitors to the CYC docks or directly to one of the inner harbor business or town docks.

The CYC dockmaster can be hailed on VHF channel 68, and will be happy to help. Alternatively the Dockmaster’s office can be contacted at 207.236.3014 or via

For many sailors, Downeast Maine is the ultimate cruising destination and the reason why many of CYC’s members live in Maine. Camden Harbor has long been a starting or stopping point for cruising the many quiet coves, harbors, and islands of Penobscot Bay and points east.

Remember: All CYC cruises welcome and encourage member boats to join in along the way or drop out early if busy summer schedules intervene. The cruises also welcome members, not on boats, to join in at land-accessible destinations and activities along the way. Flexibility is the key and changes in itineraries occur due to wind, whim and weather. Fun and camaraderie are the goals. Evenings usually include cockpit cocktails on one member’s boat where everyone brings their beverage of choice and some munchies to share.
