The inaugural running of the combined Shipyard Cup Classics Challenge/Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club Annual Regatta was a huge success last July of 2021! The enthusiastic response to this first annual event from racers, sponsors, and spectators pointed to an even more exciting experience this summer.
The 2022 regatta started with a beautiful Saturday of sun and light to moderate breezes, followed by similar conditions for Sunday’s early race. High teens to low 20s breezes led to a very competitive and exciting 2nd race. Huzza to the racers who enjoyed the thrill of the race and created the spectacle on the race course and in the parade. Our Saturday reception at Bristol Marine’s Shipyard at Boothbay Harbor will long be remembered as a very special evening in the harbor. The enthusiasm at the Awards Ceremony, boosted by some steaming hot jambalaya, capped a glorious weekend of sailing and fun for all.
Special Thanks to the Boothbay Harbor Yacht, Club, Classic Yacht Owners Association (CYOA), Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Association (GMORA), and our lead sponsors listed below. Thank you for the opportunity to bring this exciting event to the Boothbay peninsula.
We also heartily thank our volunteers for making the regatta a success.
