The Fall Series and Lightship Race

A good stiff breeze, sunny and warm days, and fun competition on the race course. The Fall series brings excellent racing conditions to Casco Bay. Join the fleets in around the buoy racing.


Held over 4 weekends in September and early October, this event dates back to the 1950’s and attracts boats from Casco Bay to enjoy what is arguably the best time of year to sail in Maine. The Series consisted of four weekends of round the bouys racing and one Saturday devoted to the Lightship Race, which takes boats out and around the location of the old Portland Lightship off Cape Elizabeth and back to the finish inside Hussey Sound. The Stanley Moore Memorial Trophy, begun in 1955 as a weekend of racing among the annual Club cruise morphed into the winner of the Lightship Race in the mid ‘60s.
