The MS Harborfest Regatta is at the heart of MS Harborfest. Now in its 33rd year, the MS Regatta will draw sailboats from Portland Harbor as well as from many other Maine coastal communities. The MS Regatta is the longest running—and largest—sailing event in Northern New England.  In 2012, the National MS Society’s MS Regatta was recognized as the Regatta of the Year by the Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Association (GMORA).
