Don't miss the Annual Castine Maine Classic Yacht Celebration

This year’s Castine Classic Yacht Regatta sponsored by the Castine Yacht Club, will honor the classic Concordia class yachts.  A magnificent fleet of Concordias will rendezvous in Castine to kick-off a month-long celebration marking the 75th Anniversary of these famed 39’10” and 41’ yachts.  On Wednesday, July 31, notable examples will be on exhibition at the Castine Town Dock. 

The Concordia yachts will be honored at a symposium on July 31 at 4PM. in Delano Auditorium, Maine Maritime Academy. This Concordia event follows on from Castine celebrations in the last two years honoring the great early 20th century classic designs from William Fife III of Firth of Clyde, Scotland, and Nathanael Herreshoff of Bristol, Rhode Island.

The fourteenth annual Castine Classic Yacht Race to Camden will set sail from the Castine harbor bell at 11:30 AM on August 1.  This 20 nautical mile race, which feeds into the Camden to Brooklin race on August 2 and the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta on August 3, is expected to attract a magnificent fleet of Classic and Spirit of Tradition yachts, according to David Bicks and Bob Scott, chairmen of the Castine events.
