Listen for the keeper's command, "Open the boat room doors!" and return to the days of shipwrecks and lifesaving along Cape Cod shores. Watch uniformed surfmen fire a line from a cannon to a "ship" in distress and haul the "victim" to shore. This is our 35th year reenacting this 1902 rescue drill. Takes place at Old Harbor Life-Saving Station, Race Point Beach, 191 Race Point Road, Provincetown.
