Thanks for the info. I will try my best to get up there with the whaler for a nice long weekend. Besides, my tee shirt selection has been slowly making it's way into the rag pile and I can always use a few new ones!

I am hoping I can make it to Boothbay Harbor Races this year. I am hoping maybe get a FPT engine there on display. No promises.

Default Tourist help please

[QUOTE=F/V First Team;91793]Maine Lobster Boat Races 2014 Schedule
July 4th Moosabec Reach - Points Race
July 12th Searsport - Points Race
July 13th Stonington - Points Race
July 19th Friendship - Points Race (might be the 20th, haven't received confirmation

We (wife and daughter actually) are picking dates to take my daughter to look at colleges this summer in Mass.
I would like to add some time for the lobster boat races in July. Which is the best one? Or just pick one? I have never really been, just stopped by one for a few minutes, took a few pictures and got on with business.
I would like to spend more time, indulge in a few adult beverages and shoot the bull.
By then I will have my boat in the water down here and know the numbers.
Any help would be appreciated
