8th Annual Castine Classic Yacht Race & Symposium

All Day
Downtown Castine
Maine Street, Castine , Maine

You’ll want to be on the Castine waterfront during the eighteenth annual Castine Classic Yacht Race & Symposium.  On August 2nd we will honor Aage Nielsen, a genius of twentieth century yacht design, at an exhibition at the Town Dock and a symposium at Maine Maritime Academy, chaired by Doug Adkins. Maynard Bray and Tom Jackson, authors of “Worthy of the Sea,” the definitive Nielsen treatise, will help orchestrate the presentation.

Join in or watch from land or sea but don’t miss the August 3rd celebrated yacht race from Castine to Camden. Sailors and yachts from everywhere traditionally participate in this classic thriller on Penobscot Bay!

All Nielsen yacht owners wishing to participate are urged to contact
