Second Annual Camden Classics Cup
Published on January 26th, 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 on July 27-29 opens the classic yacht racing season in Maine and serves as the introduction to Camden Classics Week.
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, with the CCC fleet to dress ship and parade through Camden Harbor. L
The event format includes two days of CRF, Spirit of Tradition and PHRF racing followed appropriately with post-race celebrations. Registration is open and the NOR, sailing instructions and calendar of 2017 events is posted at www.camdenclassicscup.com.
The Camden Classics Cup is followed by Camden Classics Week featuring destination racing to Castine, Brooklin and outer islands, plus youth sailing and events. It all sets up a week of racing, cruising, and serious camaraderie. The town of Camden in Maine and its businesses embrace the maritime theme with art displays, a classic car expo, music and film, plenty of youth events and fun for the entire family all centered on the waterfront of beautiful Camden.
