COME FOR THE RACING, STAY FOR THE TOWN
Camden, Maine is one of the most picturesque towns in New England. The harbor is surrounded by a lively village, filled with one-of-a-kind boutiques and gourmet restaurants. Framing the scene are the sweeping iconic Camden Hills, giving hikers unbeatable views of Penobscot Bay.
The sailing grounds off Camden offer exhilarating challenges and comfortable cruising for experienced racers and weekend cruisers alike.
