The Harraseeket Regatta offers racing around some of the most beautiful parts of Casco Bay. The race follows a pursuit format, with the smallest and highest rated boats starting first -- no crowd at the starting line. When boats sail to their rating, the finish can be exciting as the faster boats catch up to the early starters, and everyone crosses the finish within a few minutes of one another.
HYC offers a friendly, casual atmosphere in one of the best-protected harbors in Casco Bay. Following the post-race festivities, which include some delicious food and kegs of local microbrew, it’s a short sail or motor to the anchorage at the Goslings. What a great way to mix racing and cruising in a single weekend!
