2018 Camden Classic Cup/Dolphin 24 New England Championships Photo Gallery - updated August 13, 2018  

August 12, 2018 Weather for taking photos and video was not great, and we were missing some of last year's all star photographers, but here's what we have - and we are standing by for more imput.

This Official Program booklet (34 pages) was given out containing brief histories/photos of competitors

Here's the Dolphin 24 part (Staff is working on improving the images)

Due to heavy fog at her homeport at Spruce Head Island Maya Elena never made it to the starting line

Due to last minute life pressures DOL FYN had to drop out

And, lastly! our Class winner, Little Haste. She did not get her stuff into the booklet editors on time - here's a mock up

Little Haste

Vessel Owner: Kevin McManus

Captain and Crew: Kevin McManus, Nick Burke, Christopher McManus

Shore Crew: Sheila McManus, Ron Bates

Vessel Designer: Sparkman & Stephens

Year Built: 1970

Vessel Type: Sloop

LOA: 24'; Beam 7'8";

Draft: Board up 2'10"; Board down 5'2"

Little Haste is the former Canopache and she spent many years out on Cape Cod. She is now ready for Maine


The Parade was organized alphabetically so Marionette followed Marileee (right).

The competing boats (67 entries) gathered in the outer harbor then followed the principal race committee boat back into the inner harbor past spectators lined up on shore - see photo below

When the individual boats past the head of the harbor and turned to head back out, an announcer read off the 'history' of each boat as described in the Parade of Sail

Stay tuned - we are standing by for 'official' photos from the organizers, and others
