J/105 Rocks FIGAWI Memorial Day Race

Many people say the most popular offshore Memorial Day event in New England is "The Figawi." The PHRF pursuit-style race starts off Hyannis at 10:00am and sends the fleet on a 25.0nm ride to Nantucket. While it was a gorgeous day, the wind Gods did not cooperate, making it a longer than normal cruise across Nantucket Sound to the finish line off the harbor entrance. Most boats took around 6+ hours to make the crossing. Nevertheless, the breeze angles seemed favorable to a number of teams. In PHRF S2 Class, winning was Dwight Greenhouse’s J/105 SKIPPERDEE, followed by the trio on the J/105 DARK’N’STORMY (Joyce, Reservitz, Wagner).
