Schooner Racing in July aboard the Olad!

Coming up in July, we'll have some fantastic opportunities for some great sailing and racing in Penobscot Bay, and you're invited to join in on the fun!

The Great Schooner Race is in it's 43rd year, and we're lucky to be participating along with many other historic schooners on July 5th, departing the Camden Harbor at 9am.  Make sure you have plenty of room in your camera for all the photos you'll be taking.  This full day sail will have lunch provided, and a return coach ride from Rockland back to Camden at the end of the day.  BYOB $140
