The Eggemoggin Reach Regatta began humbly in 1985 with
thirteen wooden boats and a dream. Organizer Steve White
along with Frank Hull of Brooklin Boatyard first envisioned
the race as an opportunity for wooden boat owners to get
to together and enjoy each others company as well as to
compete. The race quickly grew to 125 boats and is now co-hosted
Boatyard and Rockport
Marine.. The Regatta's 15-mile course has remained the
same over the years and only once was the race cancelled
due to fog. (The party still happened though!) The Camden
Feeder Regatta and the Castine Classic Yacht Race soon joined
the ERR to create a truly spectacular three-day event.
