Castine Yacht Club Burgee

Celebrating Maine Sailboat Builders
1-2 August 2018

About the Race

Please join us for the nineteenth annual Castine Classic Yacht Race to Camden on 2 August 2018, kicking off three days of spectacular racing on Penobscot Bay.

On 1 August we will honor some of the world-class sailboat builders from our home waters, including Brooklin Boat Yard, Rockport Marine, Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding, Artisan Boatworks and French & Webb, at an exhibition at the Town Dock and a symposium at Maine Maritime Academy. The symposium will be chaired by Gary Jobson.

Your registration for this race may now be completed on this website. If you prefer to register by mail, download a registration form. Please return your entry as soon as possible. Please note the Classic Racing Formula was changed in 2017. A new Mark II CRF rating may be obtained online at

Please contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in Castine this summer.
