Mission Statement

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

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

2. Provision of funding for community youth sailing

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

We 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.

We are a 501(c)3 Maine corporation.  Membership and donations are fully deductible according to law.



If you have an affinity for sailing any of these classic sailboats as well as fine craftsmanship please see our membership page to learn how you can join and help.  You may be a boat owner, crew, or builder or a lover of classic boats.
