Maine Kayak Regatta 2017
Thursday, August 3, 2015 6:00 PM until Sunday, August 6, 2015 3:00 PM
Casco Bay, Maine

Join us for a paddling pilgrimage in the islands of Maine this summer; a journey of connection, regeneration and renewal over 3.5 days.

Beginning with dinner and gear prep in Gorham, ME on Thursday evening, we will spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday paddling, sharing good adventure, good food, great music, some thoughtful dialogue and silent paddle meditation.

FAQ's
Itinerary: This year's itinerary will leave from Portland and end in Harpswell, Maine.

Accomodations: Overnights will be glorified tenting, paddlers provide tents unless specific arrangements are made.

Mileage: The Regatta typically covers between 25-35 miles over the course of the weekend (7-14 mi/day), and the event is intended for practiced paddlers with some experience, though now and again we have bold greenhorns step up and get blistered.

Age: Regatta participants tend to be 18 and over. We will consider exceptions to this guideline...but please ask.

Boat type: We tend to be biased toward closed cockpit human powered vessels 16' and longer equipped with a functional skeg or rudder.

Gear Needs: If you don't have a boat, paddle, tent, sleeping bag, etc. we can likely help you find one.

Pricing: $500

Flow Fund: We donate 10% of proceeds to charities chosen by our paddlers. Since 2013, we've donated $3400 to 6 worthy organizations: The Maine Island Trail Association, Rippleffect, The Good Life Center, The Wooden Boat School and The Lovers Lane Council Treehut.
Mojo: The Regatta is prone to magical moments like: hot rock sunbathing, wild rainbows, post-paddle massage therapy, surfing otters, dawn yoga, lobster bake, council medicine, acoustic serenades, snacktician support vessels, crazy squalls, tidal zone discoveries, silent paddle meditation with eagles, bonfire belly dancing, seals and osprey, pre-meal poems, mermaids, geocaches and deep connections...

Please RSVP to hold one of only 12 spaces. We will ask a non-refundable $100 payment to any who wish to sign up, and hope you will join us!
