Sailstice for the Merfolk


The entire aquatic community is invited to Sailstice again this year! Come swim with the cruisers listen and dance to great waterfront concerts.

Mers are invited to everything. It really is great fun to swim with the cruisers, and the races we have on Sailstice Day June 22 are informal and fun events that don’t mind having some extra fins in the water!

On the EVENTS page you’ll see that the Festival of the Oceans Nautical Expo runs June 21 thru 28, so you can swim around the displayed boats. The art exhibition at Second Norway also runs thru June 28; I’ll add more details as the artwork is installed. Malolo Island Marina has music and boat camping Friday through Monday June 21-23, so lots going on there too!

We have an amazing new event this year, the Marathon Fun Run/Walk Thru Second Norway. Although it’s a legged land route, it’s easy to see how you can swim along between the many islands. This is a special Relay For Life event and mers are absolutely welcome to participate!

The BIG mer event is always the fantastic Sails & Tails Party at Nantucket Park! Note that it is earlier this year, from 1:30 to 3:30PM SLT — that should be a lot better for our European mers!
Each year the Nantucket Yacht Club sets out their big donut-shaped glass dance floor, and they build a beautiful coral reef underneath. There’s two hours of great music in an absolutely unique environment; it really is like nothing else in ANY world.
