Spring and early summer is a fantastic time of year to be living on Cape Cod or visiting! This is the time of year when events start picking up and there are simply more fun possibilities to fit in than time in the day. We want to highlight just a few of our favorite upcoming events on the Cape and Islands.
The Figawi is all about fun and sailing. This year marks the 38th Annual Figawi Race Weekend, taking place during May 22-25 in both Hyannis and Nantucket Island. This year the Figawi race itself has over 200 registered boats, including U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy's schooner "Mya". Whether the Senator himself will actually sail in the race has not yet been confirmed. For details on the event and more information, please see the Figawi.com web site.
