Journey to Nantucket

This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to Nantucket during the Figawi Regatta weekend. It was quite exciting.  The Figawi races began in 1972 when a few friends decided to race their boats from Hyannis to Nantucket.  Rumor has it that there was some fog and the racers became a bit lost and were asking, "Where the Figawi with their thick Boston accents.  The name stuck and the race is now one of the premier sailboat races in the Northeast.

Here is a series of photos from the weekend.
