Maine lobster boat races slated for weekend

The Associated Press

WINTER HARBOR, Maine — Maine lobstermen are gunning their engines this weekend for two days of lobster boat races.

Races are being held Saturday in Winter Harbor, followed by a separate set of races slated for Sunday in Pemaquid.

Fishermen each year race their boats in a series of races during the summer for bragging rights and cash prizes.

Two more race dates are scheduled this summer after this weekend.

Portland will host a slate of races next Sunday, while Eastport will have a single lobster boat race during its Pirate Festival on Sept. 9.
