Never mind what that silly groundhog says – for us the real sign that winter will end soon is when the regatta schedules are released. In addition to longtime favorites like the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta and new gatherings like the Penobscot Bay Cup, the yacht races that comprise the Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Association’s (GMORA) summer schedule are events that no Maine skipper will want to miss. GMORA’s recently released lineup is as exciting as ever, whether you’re up for an overnight race like the Monhegan Regatta planned for August 12-14 or daylight affairs like the Rockland-Castine Race, to be held July 9-10. Just browsing through the list of regattas will have you dreaming about tossing up the chute on one of those picture-perfect summer evenings that we know are right around the corner!
