Register Today and Join The Party! The 2013 Penobscot Bay Rendezvous, August 15-18th will once again be Maine's most exciting sailing regattas of the season. Super yachts, to classics to performance racers, and of course, all J/Teams that can make it from the northeast! The Penobscot Bay Rendezvous is a celebration of boating and boatbuilding. Featuring daily races for sailboats and the sailors will be hosted each night at a different exclusive venue in Rockland, Thomaston and Camden, Maine. Delicious locally sourced menus, dancing and fireworks are all a part of the ticket. To get the flavor of what it's like to sail this event, please view Billy Black's YouTube sailing video here.
