Yes, Figawi is a great race (for anyone unfamiliar, it is a "pre-corrected" race meaning every boat has a different start time based on its rating so the order you finish is the order you place).

However, I would not want anybody reading this to think I recommend doing the Figawi in a Melges 24 -- too risky with the cold water etc. Once we started having kids I decided my reckless days were over. The last time I did it in the Melges was when my wife was pregnant with our first....
