2021 Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club Regatta and Shipyard Cup Classics Challenge
Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club has been conducting an annual regatta for 46 years and this year’s event, July 24 and 25, is the 47th running and features an expanded signature event. Visitors and residents will enjoy the event by sea or by land.
The club announced that the event will now include the Shipyard Cup Classics Challenge. The Shipyard Cup Regatta, which previously featured superyachts and was sponsored by Hodgdon Yachts (also the lead sponsor of this years event) was a mainstay for both the sailing and local community in Boothbay Harbor for over a decade. The new Shipyard Cup Classics Challenge will carry on that spirit of tradition but will feature classic yachts rather than superyachts.
The regatta will be part of the Classic Yacht Owner’s Association Challenge Series, with includes several prestigious regattas throughout the northeast.
See you there! July 25, 10 a.m. – Inner Harbor parade of BHYC Regatta Shipyard Cup Classic Challenge racing boats – parade route east side to west – Announcer heard at Whale Park, Coastal Prime, or on VHF channel 72.
