Anyone Racing in the Figawi?

Hey all,

Is anyone here racing in the Figawi this year? I would but my boat is too small, so I'll be watching from my powerboat. It should be a lot of fun can't wait!

The Figawi is a regatta going from Cape Cod to Nantucket... See www.figawi.com for details.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Am giving it some thought. Have not done it before but it sounds like fun. I am not exactly an experienced racer.

I'm interested in crewing, so contact me if you're looking for an able body with racing experience (incl. good spinnaker knowledge), and someone who'd like to keep learning. I've sailed 420s, solings, j-boats, beneteaus in NE. I'm new to this Forum, but I think you can Private Message me. Thanks!

I wouldn't worry about being an experienced racer, I think there are sailors of all abilities. Yes making it to the gazebo is definitely the primary goal!
