Great Harbor celebration

MOUNT DESERT — The Northeast Harbor Fleet is set to host a Great Harbor Dream Celebration race and dinner dance Sunday to support youth sailing programs.

The Great Harbor Dream is a collaboration between the sailing organizations on Mount Desert Island to encourage teenagers to sail, first by buying the fleet of Turbo 420s and this summer by adding a “pavilion” float in the harbor for those boats.

The race is planned to start a 1 p.m. from the Fleet’s mark “Q” on Aug. 2. There are spinnaker and non-spinnaker classes.

The event is open to the public and includes awards, drinks, dinner and dancing to Mr. Nick and the Dirty Tricks.
