Camden Classic Cup

The Camden Classics Cup committee is working hard to organize great days of racing with some great pre- and post race events.  Camden Classics WEEK will run throughout the entire week after the regatta.  

Though you don't need much of an excuse to come to Camden, we present 4 other reasons to join in the inaugural Camden Classics Cup.


Maine Maritime Museum Parade of Sail
Saturday, July 30th at 10am

A stately parade of competitors motor through Camden Harbor on the final day of racing. Dress ship, fly your battle flags, get your crew in matching gear.

As you motor by the Town Landing, Camden Harbor Master Steve Pixley will broadcast your boat's details and distinctions to those gathered along the waterfront.

Enter the regatta by June 27 and your boat also will be featured in the full color glossy program of the event.
