Tom Morris Memorial Regatta Is ‘Exclamation Point’



SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Cuyler Morris, president of Morris Yachts, says the forthcoming Morris Memorial Regatta is an “exclamation point” in celebration of his late father, Tom Morris, the founder of Morris Yachts who passed away in 2008.

This year’s regatta is scheduled for Sunday, July 31, as a fund-raiser for the Mount Desert Island Community Sailing Center and the Northeast Harbor Sailing School scholarship programs.

All proceeds from this event will be split between both organizations to benefit area youth wishing to attend a junior sailing program.

“The more people who participate in the regatta, the more money we raise,” said Mr. Morris. “And the more funds we raise, the more scholarships we can provide – we’ll give out as many as we can.”
