Portland Yacht Services and the Traditional Small Craft Association are proud to be hosting the 2nd annual Maine Small Craft Celebration (MSCC). We received great feedback from the visitors, exhibitors and participants that attended the first show and we look forward to making it even better this time around. This year we have simplified registration forms for both commercial exhibitors and visitors that want to bring their boats.
Small boats, sail, oar and power, will be on display on the water and on land. Demonstrations, workshops, and lectures will be given throughout the event focusing on building, operating and maintaining small boats.
The goal of the MSCC is to share the joy and appreciation of small boats: how they can be built by anyone, enjoyed safely on the water, and used to attract the next generation to Maine’s waters, our boating traditions, and the maritime professions. We want it to be fun, inexpensive and enduring. The most unique feature will be that many of the boats will be in the water, allowing visitors to “Try it-Like it.” Designers, builders and owners will be there dockside to discuss and demonstrate their boats and visitors will be able to take them for a test “drive” after learning the particulars about that craft.
A portion of the proceeds from the MSCC will be donated to the not-for-profit organizations that participate in and support this event.
