Belfast Harbor was buzzing with activity all weekend with the annual Belfast Harbor Festival taking over the area. And one of the larger events of the weekend proved to be the 10th annual Come Boating! Rowing Regatta that featured six gigs and two one-man crafts all hoping to bring home the top time of the day.

In the end, it was a local gig that took first0place honors, with the Selkie finishing ahead of the pack with a time of 28 minutes and 23 seconds.

The Selkie and the Belle Fast were the two local gigs, while the four other gigs hailed from Plymouth, Buzzard’s Bay and Gloucester, Mass.

The race began in the middle of the harbor and the course was three nautical miles, just touching the outside of the harbor after rounding the monument and heading back to the Belfast Boathouse.

Official race results for the gigs were: 1, Selkie, 28:23; 2, Mike Jenness Sr., 28:45; 3, Gail Force, 31:13; 4, Siren’s Song, 33:30; 5, Interceptor, 33:43; and 6, Belle Fast, 35:06.

Daniel Guiod finished at 32:37 in his sliding seat single scull, while George Hill finished the race with a time of 39:44 in his Adirondack guideboat.
