Thanks to the Morong/Bresnahan families for the use of their dock space for our Green Fleet!

Camden Yacht Club is hosting the regatta.  However, due to space constraints, boats will be launched from two different venues.  Lasers, 420s and coach boats will register and launch from the public dock at Steamboat Landing (around the corner from Lyman Morse at Wayfarer Marine).  All Optimists will register and launch from the Camden Yacht Club.  All awards and social events will take place at the Camden Yacht Club.
The regatta will take place on July 15th and 16th.  Registration is open the afternoon of July 14th.  For a full schedule of events, please visit the schedule of events page.
