Memorial Day weekend has long been considered the unofficial start to Summer here on the Cape and Islands, and the best way to celebrate is with a premier sailing event. The Figawi is an annual event that begins with a kickoff party at the Hyannis Yacht Club late afternoon on Friday the 26th. Then teams depart for Nantucket when the race begins from the Hyannisport Jetty at 10am. The party continues on Saturday night at the Competitor Party under the Event Tent on New Whale Street in Nantucket.
If you are lucky enough to venture over to Nantucket to catch the finish line, and the party, here are a few homes that would be perfect to kick back and relax in for the the weekend.
