Visiting Yachts/Guests


Camden Harbor

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.

CYC is proud to offer reciprocity to visiting members listed in the Registry of American Yacht Clubs.
