FRIENDSHIP, Maine — Lobstermen are competing for bragging rights and prizes while racing their boats in Friendship as part of the ongoing series of boat races along the Maine coast.

Saturday’s races are in Friendship, a lobster-fishing harbor along the state’s midcoast. They are the seventh set of races for the summer.

The races are action-packed contests where lobstermen race their vessels at speeds that can top 60 mph with spectators watching from shore and from boats that line the race courses.

More races are being held Sunday in Harpswell.
