One Design Association

The Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club is proud of its long tradition of sailing and racing the "Boothbay Harbor One Design" sailboat. Our members are owners and admirers of this special class of boat, which has sailed the waters of Boothbay Harbor since the 1930s.

The Boothbay Harbor One Design Association was established to encourage the class and to foster the education and enjoyment of sailing and projects that support our mission by offering opportunities to children, sailors and non-sailors alike to share their common interest in all aspects of sailing and classic sailboats. We gather in the spirit of fellowship, adventure and love of sailing history to share our skills and experience. Our calendar includes socials, sailing events and races.

The mission of the Boothbay Harbor One Design Association, is three fold:

  • Perpetuation of the classic fleets of boats of the Boothbay Region, including the Boothbay Harbor One Design, the Christmas Cove One Designs, the Hodgdon 21, the Boothbay 20 and the Great Lakes 21.

  • Provision of funding for community youth sailing.

  • Furthering the sailing traditions of the Boothbay Region and Maine.
