7. The Hot Race: Rainbow Fleet and Opera House Cup
SUNDAY ⎜ BRANT POINT ⎜ 9AM
It’s race week here on Nantucket and time to celebrate Nantucket Community Sailing here on ACK! “This summer will mark the 18th Annual Rainbow Parade around Brant Point on the morning of the Opera House Cup Regatta (which benefits Nantucket Community Sailing), and there will likely be hundreds of spectators cheering from the beach. Anne Cross initiated this parade to get the Rainbows out sailing, distributing flyers weighted down with pebbles to all the Rainbows in the harbor, and ensuring that there were plenty of sails of different colors. Today, not every Rainbow has a solid color sail — there are stripes, a cloud, stars, and even an American flag. While there are other Beetle Cat fleets, the Nantucket fleet is unique in that it’s the only fleet with rainbow-hued sails. ” It’s probably one of the most instagram worthy days on ACK!
