Celebrate great sailing and all things Maine and maritime in Camden!
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 third year, the event opens the classic yacht racing season in Maine and serves as the introduction to Camden Classics Week.
The CCC regatta is scheduled for the weekend prior to the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta and presented by Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding in conjunction with the Camden Yacht Club. In its first year, CCC met its promise and goal by drawing a superb classic fleet to the waters of Penobscot Bay and into Camden Harbor. 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. Last year’s showing was quite an elegant spectacle.
The event format includes two days of CRF, Spirit of Tradition and PHRF racing followed appropriately with post-race celebrations.
