J/46 BRAVO - Camden Classic Cup! © YSBVI

"Greetings from the Caribbean," says Tom Babbitt. "I had a crazy idea this winter while cruising the eastern Caribbean and reflecting that there are at least eight J/46's based in Maine.....we should do something together!

Lyman-Morris runs an excellent event in late July based at Camden Yacht Club- it's the Camden Classics Cup. And, with a minimum 4 boats we can have a one-design start, trophies and a wonderful time. A few years ago I was able to get six J/160's on the line and it was a blast!

Our one design rules would be as follows (so no one gets out of cruising trim):

  • Appropriate cruising anchor and chain in place on the bow
  • Dodger up and in place
  • Jib maximum is 100%, no Genoa's
  • No spinnakers
  • Auto pilots, electric winches and whisker poles permitted
  • Single handed, double handed or a whole gang of crew all good
  • Deep draft will carry a PHRF handicap relative to shoal draft boats- per Rod Johnstone's recommendation
Come one, come all, love to see you all there from anywhere!"

For more information, contact Tom at email- or cell +1-207-632-1262. He is currently delivering his J/46 BRAVO from the Caribbean (St Thomas) to Maine.
