Eggemoggin Reach Regatta

11:00 am
Race Date:   Saturday, August 1, 2015

This year there will be a Friday night talk at 8pm in the tent on the WoodenBoat waterfront.

“The Schooner Bowdoin in the Arctic” with images by Tom Stewart and others of Maine Maritime Academy’s voyages north over the past 27 years. Narrated by Andy Chase, captain of the Bowdoin from 1989-1991.

The Eggemoggin Reach Regatta began humbly in 1985 with thirteen wooden boats and a dream. Organizer Steve White along with Frank Hull of Brooklin Boatyard first envisioned the race as an opportunity for wooden boat owners to get to together and enjoy each others company as well as to compete. The race quickly grew to 125 boats and is now co-hosted byBrooklin Boatyard and Rockport Marine.. The Regattas 15-mile course has remained the same over the years and only once was the race cancelled due to fog. (The party still happened though!) The Camden Feeder Regatta and the Castine Classic Yacht Race soon joined the ERR to create a truly spectacular three-day event.

We want to thank WoodenBoat Publications for the generous use of their grounds for our event.
