SailMaine, Portland’s Community Sailing Program, is hosting a national regatta this next week – it runs from August 5th – 8th.  In conjunction with that, SailMaine is looking for volunteers to assist in this this project.  About 250 competitiors from all over the US and abroad are expected to race in Casco Bay.

SailMaine is a non-profit community organization formed to support sailing in Maine at the grass-roots, community level.  It’s located at 58  Fore Street at the base of Munjoy Hill on the east end of Portland.  It’s affordable programs are intended for all ages and abilities.  It teaches sailing and has small sail boats for rent.   Through providing access to the waterfront to the surrounding community, SailMaine teaches leadership, self-reliance, sportsmanship and respect for the marine environment in which it is located. This is not the first time SailMaine is hosted a national competition; this year it is the  2013 USODA New England Championship.

Volunters are needed beginning on Monday, August 5th and running through and including Wednesday, August 7th. Volunteers are needed to set up each morning, register, to coordinate traffic flow, wash boats and to perform other similar responsibilities for the three day event.
