SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The Mount Desert Island Community Sailing Center is gearing up for a busy 20th anniversary season.

“The sailing center has classes for both youths and adults, and no matter your ability, we can get you on the water,” director Glenn Squires said. Online registration is open and spaces fill up fast in Junior Program and Adult Beginner Courses in July and August. Morning sailing programs will again be linked with other afternoon camps in Southwest Harbor.

The Sailing Center and the Northeast Harbor Fleet are set to co-host the 2016 Northeast Junior Olympic Sailing Festival July 12-13. Activities will be based at the town of Northeast Harbor Marina and Green. “We anticipate more than 175 junior sailors from Maine and New England to compete on the Great Harbor for the gold, silver and bronze, making friends and memories that will last a lifetime,” Squires said.
