*In the event of bad weather the races will take place the following Sunday, August 5, 2018.*Races Will Take Place Sunday, July 29 In Potts Harbor — Ending A 4-Year Hiatus For One Of The Town’s Most Popular Events.

The townspeople of Harpswell, Maine have come together to rejoin Maine’s summer lobster boat racing circuit in 2018. “Anyone who knows Harpswell understands how much this event has meant to our town,” said Larry Ward, Harpswell Lobster Boat Races Committee Member. “We’ve been enjoying the races in our town for nearly 30 years, and most of us have grown up looking forward to them every Summer. It was a shame that Harpswell had to take a break due to a shortage of volunteers, but I can assure you we’re stronger than ever and we’re all committed to making this a great venue for locals, tourists and surrounding businesses for generations to come.”
