Atlantic Nationals Race

Drawing more than 50 boats and 300 world-class sailors, the 2012 Atlantic Nationals will be held in Blue Hill, Maine this August. In its 84th year, the regatta includes 4 days of intense, spirited racing and 5 evenings of camaraderie, sumptuous Maine feasts and nightly entertainment. Designed by the legendary W. Starling Burgess, the 30' Atlantics are fast, nimble and challenging. They are owned by some of the greatest sailors in the world who will be traveling from around the world and across the country to attend.

This year marks two historical events. This regatta will be the largest one-design keel-boat regatta in Maine's long sailing history. Also, the 2012 Atlantic Nationals Committee is introducing the inaugural W. Starling Burgess Cup, a race dedicated to the designer with a course all the way around Long Island in Blue Hill Bay. The event is being hosted by the Kollegewidgwok Yacht Club with event headquarters at the John Peters Estate.

The 2012 Atlantic Nationals Committee engaged Cape Rosier Consulting to create a logo that captured the feel of sailing an Atlantic on Blue Hill Bay that would work well on posters and printed materials and present well when embroidered on shirts, hats and bags. Cape Rosier Consulting is also managing media relations, regatta promotion, and sponsorship for the event. Stay tuned, major sponsor announcements coming soon!

Cape Rosier Consulting has developed a website with travel and lodging information for attendees, and will soon update the site with additional race, event and sponsorship information as the committee finalizes event plans.
