Maine’s Lobster Boat Races
July 9, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Thursday, July 9, 7:00 pm in PMM’s Douglas and Margaret Carver Memorial Art Gallery, 11 Church Street
A 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 along the coast.
Videographer David Osgood of Vinalhaven has been racing lobster boats in the Maine Lobsterboat Racing circuit for many years. His boats include the Split S.E.C.O.N.D., a Crowley Beal 33 and STARLIGHT EXPRESS, a Northern Bay 36.
Cost: $8; $5 Members
