PHOTOS: An Opportunity for Wooden Boat Owners
Published on August 29th, 2016
The Eggemoggin Reach Regatta began humbly in 1985 with thirteen wooden boats and a dream. Organizer Steve White along with Frank Hull of Brooklin Boatyard first envisioned the race as an opportunity for wooden boat owners to get to together and enjoy each others company as well as to compete.
The race quickly grew to 125 boats and is now co-hosted by Brooklin Boatyard and Rockport Marine. The Regatta’s 15-mile course has remained the same over the years and only once was the race cancelled due to fog (the party still happened though).
The 2016 race was held August 6. Photos by Baird Tewksbury.
