Locals and friends “from away” all agree…there is nothing more uniquely Maine than a day at the Harpswell Lobster Boat Races!
For over 30 years, the Harpswell Lobster Boat Races have attracted fishermen, boat builders, and race fans by land and sea due to the venue’s extreme beauty and fun family atmosphere.

The races run on 100% volunteer support. Learn how you can help.
100% of the proceeds from the Harpswell Lobster Boat Races are donated back to our community.
In 2023, thanks to generous sponsors, race registrations, and commemorative merchandise sales, the HLBR Committee was able to donate $20,000 to the Harpswell Santa Fund.
This means that there will be more presents under the tree, more fuel in the tank, and more groceries in the fridge for families who need a little help from their neighbors this year.
