The Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce’s annual HarborFest celebration took place over the weekend with a block party down Long Wharf, whaleboat racing, an arts and crafts fair, a village-wide sidewalk sale and, of course, the clam chowder tasting and competition. The weekend kicked off with a Spotlight on Boating and Fishing party sponsored by The Sag Harbor Express at the Breakwater Yacht Club. On Sunday, Team Whalers won the men’s whaleboat championship for a record 18th time, while the women’s team from Brown Harris Stevens won for the first time. Also first-time winners were the Sag Harbor Fire Department Juniors team in the Youth Division. Let’s take a look back through the lens of Sag Harbor Express photographer Michael Heller.
