Figawi Race Weekend is recognized as a top sailing event not only on the east coast but nationally as well as internationally. Traditionally held over Memorial Day Weekend, the event marks the beginning of the summer season. Entries include over 100 sailboats and more than two thousand sailors and visitors hailing from all over the country. The weekend begins with a Kickoff Party at Hyannis Yacht Club on Friday May 26, 2023. It is for competitors, friends, family, and Figawi fans. Beginning at 3 pm, there is a cash bar and buffet, coveted Figawi merchandise for sale, entertainment, and most importantly, registration and pickup of the coveted Skipper's Bag with our sponsor MT GAY's infamous red hats. Early Saturday morning May 27, 2023, crews begin gathering. Skippers and boat owners prepare their boats, gather their crews, and head out to the start line. Beginning around 8 am, the parade of sailboats head out of Lewis Bay, pass by Kalmus Beach, and gather off the Hyannis Port jetty. It is a pursuit regatta and the first boats begin at 10 am. Depending on the various conditions, the theory of the Pursuit Race format is all competitors should reach the Nantucket at around the same time. Saturday night is filled with fun after a day of racing to Nantucket and seeing old friends and make new ones. Dance and enjoy music ( The Chicken Box or Cisco Brewers) and enjoy the restaurants, bars, boat parties...or just people and boat watching along the Nantucket Boat Basin docks. Sunday is a day to enjoy Nantucket Island whether visiting local shops, enjoying restaurants, biking, renting a Jeep and driving on the beach at Great Point or just walking the docks at Nantucket Boat Basin!....or sail to Nantucket Island and visiting local shops, enjoy restaurants, or walking the docks at Nantucket Boat Basin.

Also, Monday is the return "Flip-Flop" race back to Hyannis!

Bareboat Sailing Charters sailboats are located in Brenton Cove, Newport Harbor. Parking is conveniently located at Fort Adams State Park. . . overlooking the boats. Dream it...Live it...Share it !
