“Finding Your Way To Greenland"; A Personalized North Atlantic Ocean Sailing Adventure Captured on Video
The Cape Cod Maritime Museum (“CCMM”) Speaker Series is pleased to announce that Mr. Bill Cook, CCMM President Emeritus, will be presenting Finding Your Way to Greenland on Thursday May 26th, at 5:00pm at CCMM.
The presentation will be a 30-minute video of Mr. Cook’s 56’ long Bristol sloop Resolution's most recent voyage to Greenland. The southernmost area of Greenland, just north of Cape Farewell, has some of the world's most spectacular coastal mountains and sea cliffs, what The Lonely Planet Guide called "something out of a Tolkein fantasy land."
A true harbinger of summer, the annual Figawi Race from Cape Cod to Nantucket has earned widespread recognition, not only as a prestigious sailing event, but as one of New England’s best parties of the year. People from all over swarm the Island on Memorial Day weekend – decked out in Nantucket Reds and other nautical attire – to be part of the Figawi scene.
