PORTLAND — SailMaine has completed a capital campaign to raise more than $45,000 to buy a new fleet for use by youth sailors.

The nonprofit organization provides 150 students in the Casco Bay area with a competitive spring and fall high school racing program. Money raised during the campaign was used to buy a fleet of 20 used two-person dinghies.

Several hundred more children and adults will use the new fleet during summer programs, according to the organization. SailMaine last year provided sailors with more than 34,000 hours on the water.
