Welcome to the Official site of the Rockland Lobster Boat Races!

Since the beginning of the Rockland Lobster Boat Races in June of 2007, it has been our drive to provide racers and specators with the Best Race course, the Best venue for spectators (running along side the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse), a full array of participating Lobster boats from all along the coast of Maine, the highest prize values on the circuit, and great value for exposure for promoters who donate money and prizes to the race. The city of Rockland, Maine and all of our Sponsors have helped us to build this race to reach those goals. As we continue each year, we strive to improve upon past seasons and continue to satisfy our growing fan base and race participants.
