Herreshoff: Celebrating the wizard of Bristol

July 31 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Please join us for the 20th annual Castine Classic Yacht Celebration, sponsored by the Castine Yacht Club, which will honor the iconic designs of Nathanael G. Herreshoff.

On July 31 noted examples of Herreshoff craft will be on exhibition at the Castine, Maine, town dock, followed by a Symposium at the Maine Maritime Academy with a panel of distinguished Herreshoff experts and sailors, chaired by Bill Lynn, Executive Director of the Herreshoff Marine Museum/America’s Cup Hall of Fame. The Castine Yacht Club will host a reception following the symposium.

We will welcome at the exhibition—and discuss at the Symposium—some of the smaller Herreshoff classes, such as BB 25s, BB 15s, Herreshoff 12 1/2s and Herreshoff Coquinas. We are planning a short in-the-harbor race for the day sailers on August 1, together with the Castine Class fleet.

On August 1 a fleet of over 40 classic yachts will race a 19.6 nm course from Castine to Camden, followed by the Camden to Brooklin Race on August 2 and the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta on August 3.
