The Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club Regatta and Shipyard Cup Classics Challenge sails again this Summer, July 23 and 24. Even bigger and better than last year’s regatta where the Shipyard Cup Classics Challenge debuted, this year’s event will feature an expanded classic racing yachts division along with its traditional PHRF and One Design divisions, including the iconic Boothbay Harbor One Designs. A fleet of over 60 yachts is expected.
The Shipyard Cup Classics Challenge component of the weekend will again be the first in a series of Maine regattas that are part of the Classic Yacht Owners Association Challenge Series. A not-to-be-missed Parade of Sail through beautiful Boothbay Harbor featuring these spectacular vessels will be also be back on Sunday, July 24 at 10:00 a.m.
2022 marks the 48th year of Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club’s Regatta, a highlight of summers on the Boothbay peninsula since 1974.
