The Figawi Race, now in its 50th year, is a well known sailing event between Hyannis and Nantucket, held annually on Memorial Day weekend. Scaled down this year, the race normally includes over 200 vessels with sailors from several states, to kick off the summer boating season.
In most towns, Memorial Day weekend officially opens the beaches for the season. Please be familiar with the rules, and get a beach sticker if you plan to spend the weekend in the sun, salt, and surf!
Now is the season for back yard barbecues, lawn flamingos, straw handbags, white jeans, flip flops, soggy beach towels, sandy floors, non-stop company and to make reservations before going out to dine on Cape Cod!
