Maine Lobster Boat Races 2014 Schedule

If you are looking for truly unusual things to do on a Maine vacation, Maine lobster boat racing may be the perfect activity for you!

In this decades old tradition, said to be "Maine's version of NASCAR"...

...race participants take the competition seriously. With reported top speeds over 60 miles an hour and racing by Class, many boat owners follow the lobster boat "race circuit" from mid-June to late August, as it makes its way from Midcoast, Maine, to Downeast.

And the fun is not just on the water...

Locals and tourists alike, arrive early to watch the action from dockside - cheering for their favorites or letting the crowd pick one for them, just as they did at the Friendship, Maine 2008 boat races...

2014 Maine Lobster Boat Race Schedule

Thanks to the Maine Lobster Boat Racing Association (MLBRA), there are several dates and locations for watching these fierce competitions during the coming summer season.

And the races should be good, especially if a "jacked-up" engine controversy carries over from a previous race!

Please note: In case of changes, cancellations, typos, etc., be sure to verify racing dates before making travel plans.
