Lobster Boats Ready to Race in Beverly on Sunday

It’s that time of year, when local fishermen get all revved up to compete in Lobster Boat Races. The 23rd annual regatta, which will be held Sunday, July 30, at 2 p.m. off Woodbury Point, is always a festive affair, bringing out an impressive array of vessels both old and new. Skipper Mike Malewicki’s vessel, the Janie M., stole the show last year. The Beverly-based boat took top honors in four of six races, culminating with an exciting free-for- all finish down the quarter-mile course. In previous years, the race has drawn as many as a dozen boats. Last year’s event was a somewhat intimate affair by way of comparison with only four boats participating. But no matter the turnout, the dedicated group of fishermen still manages to put on a great show for the spectators that line Lynch Park.
