To a Maine Summer Tradition

Harpswell lobster boat races

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.

100% of proceeds donated

A Fun Day that does good all year long

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.

“Maine Lobstermen work HARD. I love to watch them let loose and have some fun on the water in support of a great cause!”
