Join us for the Fourth Annual Camden Classics Cup YOUTH REGATTA
Competition to be held Friday, July 24, 2020
Location: Camden Outer Harbor
Come watch the area’s best junior sailors compete on 420s and Optis in the fourth annual Camden Classics Cup Youth Regatta (CCCYR), Friday, July 24, 2020. CCCYR is organized for sailors aged 12-18. This special one-day race will be held just outside Camden Harbor. 48 racers aboard 24 420s boats participated last year.
This year's regatta will be better than ever. North Sails is excited to support the Camden Classics Cup Youth Regatta. Last year, two time J/24 World Champion and One Design Expert Will Welles were on the race course with Kimo Worthington, six-time America's Cup sailor, to watch racing, provide coaching and offer post race analysis. We will update as to who will be on-course spring 2020.

Including a youth sailing event with the CCC is a wonderful way to introduce young sailors to skippers meetings and ratings discussions that they normally wouldn’t experience. It’s also a way for the entire midcoast area and the town of Camden to get more involved with sailing and boating activities.
There is no charge to participate in the CCCYR. This regatta is sponsored by Jeff's Marine of Thomaston and Lyman-Morse. The Bagel Cafe donates breakfast and French & Brawn provides lunch for the youth racers. Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Magazine is the awards' sponsor.
Youth racers will attend the CCC Skippers Meeting Friday morning before their own Youth Regatta Skippers Meeting. They will race 420 dinghies and Optis in Championship and Green Fleets in Camden Harbor, just west of the CCC race course.
Participating sailing programs have included Camden Area Youth Sailing Program (CAYSP); The Rockport Boat Club; The Apprenticeshop, Rockland; Harraseeket Yacht Club; Big Tree Boating of Islesboro; North Haven Casino YC; Castine Yacht Club; George Stevens Academy.
