MS Harborfest Regatta

August 19, 2017

MS Harborfest is a three-day festival of sailboats, tugboats, lobster boats, and a charitable auction—under the banner of the MS Harborfest—and all for the benefit of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The MS Regatta is at the heart of MS Harborfest.  Now in it's 36th year, the MS Regatta will draw well over one hundred sailboats to Portland Harbor. The MS Regatta is the longest running and largest charitable sailing event in Northern New England.

The MS Regatta is open to all sailboats over 20’ in length. There are racing divisions for monohull, multihull, and one-design fleets. Non-spinnaker cruising sailboats will be grouped into multiple divisions, and there is a division for classic sailing vessels.  This is a Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Association (GMORA) sanctioned race.

The Regatta Post Race Party is a traditional Lobster Bake sponsored by Cozy Harbor. BBQ meal available and includes a BBQ of hamburgers, hot dogs and fixin’s sponsored by Longhorn Steak House. Beverages sponsored by Shipyard Brewing, Eli's Soda, and Poland Spring Water.
