Five boats from the Mattapoisett Yacht Club made the Memorial Day weekend trek to Hyannis to compete in the 44th Annual Figawi Race from Hyannis to Nantucket on May 23. Of those five boats, Mattapoisett Yacht Club had a win, a place and a show! MYC Commodore Bob Warren in his Dufour 38 In Deep finished first place in Division D, Charlie Prefontaine in his Alberg 35 Helios finished second in Division O, and Jim Barnes in his Little Harbor 64 Lynley III finished third in Division E. Their combined scores gave them a third place in the team competition.
The MYC racing season officially begins June 9 with the first Tuesday night series for the Ensign and 420 class boats. The handicap cruising fleet will hold a practice race on Wednesday, June 10. Wednesday and Tuesday night Racing Series are open to all boats who register: $60 for members and $75 for nonmembers. For further information, go to mattapoisettyc .org.
