FIGAWI 2018

Hingham Yacht Club had a strong presence at the 2018 FIGAWI race from Hyannis to Nantucket over Memorial Day Weekend.

Steve DeMenna sailed his Hinckley 42 “Magic Dragon”, Kirk Brown sailed his J40 “Jazz”, Rear Commodore Chris Burns, Club Secretary Dan White and Matt Ferguson sailed their Catalina 34 “Ocean Rose”, and Past Commodore Peter Ross competed on his New York 40 “Blixtar”. 

Conditions were sunny, cool and breezy!  Winds from the Southwest peaking at 23 knots by midafternoon kept all the crews quite busy!  Over 200 boats participated in this year’s event, which made for great competition throughout all fleets.

Congratulations to Ocean Rose and her crew for placing 2nd in division N, while team Blixtar scored a 3rd  place finish in Division F.

Great way to start the 2018 racing season!
