Local schooners engage in a friendly race on Thursday, kicking off a long weekend of festivities. Two dozen boats arrive on Friday as the city hosts a block party. Saturday features Maritime Heritage Day, full of family fun. The Parade of Sail takes place on Sunday morning, as the participating schooners make their way through the harbor and out past the breakwater, to the Mayor’s Race.
