It is our intention to run one race today. The first start will be on time at 10:00.

The water is cold, the air will remain cold, it will rain a bit, and there are thunderstorms and fog forecast for later on this afternoon.

So we will keep this simple today and start on time. We will run SPECIAL COURSE 10 (LABELED AS H IN THE SAILING INSTRUCTIONS).

‘Y’ flag has been displayed at HYC. Lifejackets must be worn.

Please note the Change to Sailing Instructions posted last night. The positions of the Start Boat and the Orange Start Buoy have been flipped from the diagram. Boat will be to Port, Buoy to Starboard.

Dress warm!

We are still hoping to be able to race tomorrow (Sunday). The forecasts are a bit mixed but there is the possibility that the windspeed will diminish enough and the temperature will rise enough to get a race in. We don’t want to give up on this, so at this time we remain on schedule for a 10:00 Sunday start.

There is the possibility that we could postpone the start until a bit later in the day.

If we do race it is highly likely we will use one of the two Special Courses. Make sure you have your scratch sheet with start times for both the regular courses and the Special Courses. They are two separate documents.

If we do race it is highly likely we will display signal flag ‘Y’ from the Hyannis Yacht Club flagstaff. This would invoke Racing Rule 40- lifejackets required at all times while afloat.

A notification will be sent and posted by 7:00 am Sunday with the plan for the day.

Stay warm.

Thank you for your patience,
Figawi Race Committee

It all started between a few friends and a sailing race challenge. We've grown over the years and added many more events.


Our vibe brings people coming back year after year. Our goal is to see you again, so our next event will be even better.


We support military veterans and first responders, sailing and youth sports, and the local marine environment.
