Summer Cruise-Eggemoggin Reach Regatta Spectating 2022

 The August cruise, which we’re changing from one week to a weekend. This is the weekend of the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta, which allows us to be spectators at the race.

Past RYC Cruise Chair Ginny Travers hosted a RYC Cruise Gathering on Friday August 5th at Hell’s Half Acre and Saturday August 6th at a point in the Eggemoggin Reach to watch the wooden boat race.    The race fleet left the outer Camden harbor and races to the Wooden Boat School that Friday.  Traditionally we get ‘parked’ above North Haven for a period and then carry-on right past Hell’s.  The race then, fog willing, starts late morning on Saturday.
 
There was a cocktail hour on one of the participant boats or on the beach.   This has been an unofficial RYC Cruise Event that feels like it should be an ongoing celebration of our wooden boat heritage.
