The Annual SailMaine Shakedown Regatta is an opportunity for SailMaine sailors to get a chance to experience the thrill of PHRF racing. PHRF racers can make connections with new sailors and potentially add them as crewmembers. SailMaine will assign 1-3 students to add to the crew on participating boats based on experience, skills and preferences.
This event is also a fundraiser for all of SailMaine's community sailing programs.
This event is the start of the GMORA sailing season. It's a great opportunity for all boats to “shake off the cobwebs” in a non-scored regatta. Come and meet new people, learn more about SailMaine and enjoy some fun time on Casco Bay.
The course is in the vicinity of Portland Harbor. There are great views of the action from Fort Allen Park on the Eastern Promenade. After the sailing, there's a party under the tents at Portland Yacht Services that is open to the Racers and to the public.
The regatta is open to all boats that want to race, as an introduction to both SailMaine and GMORA. It serves as a tune-up for the circuit racing that begins officially June 16th with the Centerboard Regatta and continues on through the Summer months. We're hoping that both boats and crew who haven't jumped in to circuit racing in the Gulf of Maine will be tempted to give it a try.
Regatta entry fees are $50.00 per boat. SailMaine sailors pay a $20.00 participation fee, which includes dinner and an event tee-shirt.
Regatta Dinner tickets for non-participants may be purchased for $20.00.
