Classic and New
In 1986, Steve White, and Frank Hull of Brooklin Boat Yard started the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta (ERR). Thirteen boats participated in that first event, which led to two more regattas that now make up a three-regatta Wooden Boat Series. In 2015, Lyman-Morse created the Camden Classics Cup at the old Wayfarer Marine facility in Camden, to run the week before the Wooden Boat series.
