We are pleased that the Falmouth Yacht Club, in cooperation with the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce and MacDougalls’ Cape Cod Marine Service, will be holding the first Falmouth to Hyannis Race on Friday, May 27, 2011. The 20 mile course will start at 10 am near the mouth of Falmouth Harbor and finish at Hyannis.
As a precursor to the annual Figawi race, the Falmouth leg allows sailors, particularly from points west of Cape Cod, and opportunity to shake down and prep for the Hyannis to Nantucket sail later that same weekend. In addition, the stop-over in Falmouth Harbor will give delivery crews and visiting yachtsmen an opportunity to visit and enjoy the hospitality of one of the jewels of Cape Cod that is Falmouth. Sailors with be welcomed with dockage and mooring space courtesy of MacDougalls’, Falmouth Yacht Club and the Town of Falmouth and the best of Main Street’s dining and shopping. As a proud member of the Falmouth Community, The Captain’s Manor Inn bed and breakfast views the Falmouth to Hyannis Race as an event sailors will come to enjoy for years.
