Figawi Participants and Friends –

Welcome to the 42nd occasion of Figawi Race Weekend. A premier sailing event on the East Coast.

This year we are honored to be teaming with Holiday for Heroes, a Nantucket based organization, in honoring wounded soldiers from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. They will be our honored guests both on the race course as well as at the awards ceremony on this Memorial Day Weekend. The recent events in Boston at the Marathon have prompted the Figawi Board of Governors to take increased security measures at our event. We have increased Nantucket and State Police presence both on the waterfront and in town. We ask that when you come to the tent do not bring back packs, purses, or bags of any description. Please wear your bracelet and bring an ID. If you see or hear something that is of concern please contact either race organizers, boat basin personnel, or the police. “If you see something, say something.”

Please respect not only the wonderful people of Nantucket but also the beautiful Grey Lady.

Figawi Board of Governors would like to thank all of the volunteers who make this weekend happen!

We hope you have a great weekend!

The Original Figawi Trophy Donated by Baxter’s Boathouse

In 1973 the tradition began. This pewter wine decanter was used for years to toast the winner with champagne. It’s on display at Baxter’s, on Hyannis Inner Harbor.

The Performance Trophy sponsored by Cape Cod Marine Trades Assn. This trophy is presented to the best performing Cape Cod boat in both Racing and Cruising Divisions. It’s on display at Baxter’s Boathouse.

TROPHY PHOTOS:

ALAN HUDSON

Designed by silversmith Neil Terkelson of West Barnstable, and generously donated by Guertin Brothers Jewelers of Hyannis in 1987, it reflects Figawi’s status as one of the East Coast’s major sailing events. Its design reflects a sailboat hard on the wind on an arc of silver representing Nantucket Sound. It is on permanent display at the Captain’s Table, Hyannis Yacht Club.

TROPHIES The Herreschoff Marine Museum Trophy This trophy is awarded to the most competitive boat in the racing and cruising divisions. It was donated by Michael Deeley of Osterville to honor the outstanding efforts of Halsey Herreschoff, and Bristol, Rhode Island’s Herreschoff Museum, in preserving the history of New England’s premier yacht builders and yachtsmen.

The Jeffrey Carter Foster Figawi Team Trophy sponsored by Northrup & Johnson

Named in memory of a wonderful sailor from Marblehead and a great friend of Figawi, and donated by Dr. John Osmond, the trophy is intended to encourage regional competition that marked the race’s earliest days. The lowest combined score of the three boats in each team determine the winners. Jeff Foster

The Special Recognition Trophy This trophy was created in memory of Pamela Trussell Duggan, a member of Figawi’s Board of Governors and a friend to everyone she met, whose untimely passing in February, 1989, is still felt by all who knew Pam. The trophy is presented to an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the Figawi Race and is inscribed as follows: “In memory of Pamela Trussell Duggan, May 7, 1958 – February 14, 1989.

Pam Duggan

On friendship – People who have warm friends are happier and healthier than those who have none. A single, real friend is a treasure worth more than gold. Money can buy many things, good and evil. All the wealth in the world cannot buy you a friend or pay you for the loss of one. – G. D. Prentice.”

The Howard K. Penn Spirit Award This trophy was created to honor Howard K. Penn, the “Silver Fox”, a driving force for the Figawi since the beginning. He passed away just last year. His extraordinary passion for Figawi for forty years prompted his nickname “Figawi Howie”. This is a new trophy that is presented to the person that exemplifies the Figawi spirit. Naturally, it will be a brass telescope mounted backwards on a board. “In memory of Howard K. Penn, 1931 – 2012.” Howard Penn

K IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ IMMEDIATELY! K

Welcome to Nantucket Waters. Enjoy them and protect them.

Nantucket waters are among a few remaining on the East Coast that contain commercial and residential populations of oysters, clams, quahogs, and cold water scallops. Therefore, we must be diligent in our attempt to MITIGATE all manor of pollution. Surfactants (soaps and detergents) exhibit toxicity towards marine life and water quality. We must limit the amount of surfactants entering into the water column. Local bylaws prohibit the discharge of gray water. We ask that you MITIGATE, as much as possible, the gray water that enters Nantucket waters. Nantucket Boat Basin has a facility with 18 bathrooms and showers located amongst the three main wharfs. We encourage you to use these onshore facilities. Remember Nantucket now prohibits the use of black plastic trash bags.

Please BE A RESPONSIBLE FIGAWI PARTICIPANT. Thanks.

I W A G One of the great incubators of thought on Cape Cod is Baxter’s Boathouse. No, really. The view is mesmerizing, the pour is generous, the conversation animated, and it seems that, like Cheer’s, everyone (at least in the old days) knows your name, although that may not be a good thing. But I digress. It was forty-two years ago that a Baxter’s conversation among three locals, each a type A, centered on their respective sailing skills. Knowing the three, one can only imagine that the conversation was pep-

pered with invective that would not have been welcomed at the Harvard Club or the P.T.A. Talk of skills escalated in direct proportion to consumption and morphed into talk of superior skills, and who possessed them. A challenge was born! Unlike most Great Ideas that are bar-born, only to fade in the inevitable Mount Gay haze of the following morning, this one survived. And so, forty-two years later, we celebrate the end of winter with a coming together of old friends, and those who soon will be, that is the heart of this event and just makes it so damn much fun.

We take a moment to recognize our own John Griffin who will cross the starting line this year on his fortieth consecutive race, no small feat indeed! So glad you are with us, Griff! No doubt there will be many more to follow this notable achievement but for now, Griff, you hold the record. One only has to sail a Figawi with Griff to understand where the term “serious fun” originated. Thanks for your support.

Consider the terror of forging a new life—one in which your self-image is fundamentally redefined. The enormity of such selflessness and courage demands our attention. Figawi Charities has also supported a vital new non-profit on the Cape, Sail Cape Cod (www.sailcapecod.org), a community sailing organization whose mission statement, in part, reads, The mission of Sail Cape Cod is to improve the quality of life in the community through enjoyment of and connection with the sea, particularly through

What terrific organizations that are so deserving of your support! And in the 27 years of Figawi Charities, these are only two example of hundreds of local non-profits who have been supported. Won’t you consider supporting Figawi Charities as well? Sail fast. Be well. The countdown to Figawi 50 is on!

A few years back, we revived an exciting old Figawi tradition: The Figawi Team Race. Each year, we have over 20 teams competing for the Jeffrey Carter Foster Figawi Team Trophy. The trophy is dedicated to the yachtsman who initiated and spirited team racing throughout the eighties with the hotly-contested Marblehead Hyannis series. The race is always very close. So make it an extra ‘side bet’ – a special competition among the competitors. Come on, make a team. Join up with two other skippers, and put together a three-boat team to represent your sailing association, club, harbor or hometown, or geographic region. You, too, could be way famous by winning the Annual Figawi Team Race.

Enter the Figawi Team Race Competition. Bring Victory, Honor and Fame to your Club, Harbor and Hometown! The Figawi Jeffrey Carter Foster Team Trophy will be presented at the Figawi Awards Ceremony on Nantucket. Attractive keeper prizes for each team skipper will be awarded. And the winning team members names will be inscribed on the Figawi’s permanent Jeffrey Carter Foster Team Trophy. Sponsored by

Northrup & Johnson Yacht Charters See 2012 Winners on page 23. And complete winner list on page 65.

The Figawi Committee and Nantucket Community Sailing

F

or the past thirteen years the teams that comprise the Cape and Islands High School Sailing League are invited to Nantucket by the Figawi Committee and Nantucket Community Sailing to battle it out in the annual Figawi High School Invitational. Figawi’s goal for this regatta is for high school students to have a fun, competitive, and rewarding day of racing. Not only are the participants some of the best sailors from their teams, but they are also chosen by their coaches for their commitment to their teams and teammates and for their sportsmanship and hard work. The Invitational was the brainchild of former Figawi chairman Howard Penn, Nantucket Boat Basin director George Bassett, and former Nantucket Community Sailing executive director Nic Judson. It is intended to promote high school sailing on the Cape and Islands and over the years Figawi Charities has been a strong financial supporter of many of these teams. High school sailing in New England has

grown rapidly over the past few years, and nowhere is that more evident than on the Cape and Islands. Sailing is one of high school’s true coed sports, and at the Invitational we see an equal number of male and female participants. The skill level of our teams has grown dramatically over the years as a result of the dedicated coaches and volunteers who have spent countless hours encouraging and guiding our high school sailors. Their commitment does not stop there: they are also great ambassadors for the sport, which is demonstrated by their Corinthian spirit and sportsmanship as some are also competitors in the Figawi Race. The Invitational is one of the highlights of the high school season as teams get to compete in front of crowds of spectators who line the Nantucket Boat Basin docks to witness the action. The crews sail in Club 420’s loaned to Figawi by Nantucket Community Sailing and the Great Harbor Yacht Club. Each team enters one crew of two sailors who are allowed to switch back and forth as skipper and crew. The teams rotate boats after each race, sail-

Our Stalwart Figawi Photographer for many years...

Edward O’Neil Longtime Figawi photographer Ed O’Neill passed away on March 28. In recognition of his dedication to Figawi, Ed was presented the Pam Duggan Award in 2004. Whether it was at the ball, during the race or inside the joke tent, Ed loved to capture shots of people having fun, just as he loved sharing a copy of a flattering photo with them. Ed will be remembered for his sense of style, his sense of humor and his candor with his accounting clients. He is survived by his wife, Alice, eight children, 14 grandchildren and many friends.

t is always fun for the Figawi Ball Committee to hear the “WOW!” when the first-timers walk into the Ball Room. The year’s work and planning, the food and drinks, the music and dancing, the gambling – what a great night of fun and Frolic! For twenty-seven years the Figawi Charity Ball has been a night on the social calendar that we all look forward to. The ladies have a night to dress up, get the hair and nails just right. The guys can wear their pressed out tuxes and shiney shoes. I can tell you first hand the pride associated with this event. Being able to support local Cape Charities year after year is the reason our event goes on and on. The committee headed by CoChairs Rebecca and Chris Standish has brought new ideas and fresh committee faces to work all year to provide the Ball with a night that those who attend say “I really had fun and it was well worth it”.

Figawi

- It’s More Than Just A Race...

Holidays For Heroes

Thousands of men and women have given their all in defense of the freedom we enjoy in the United States of America. Holidays for Heroes is committed to honor these sacrifices by offering fellowship and goodwill by offering recreation and relaxing holidays for wounded warriors and their families. Holidays for Heroes is a Nantucket-based 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise awareness and funds through a variety of events and venues. Through the development of a board of directors and working committees, Holidays for Heroes plans to host up to six families on fundraising events to support the mission. With resources and contributions raised, they intend to sponsor these men and women in various athletic and sporting events such as the F igawi R ace Weekend and the July 4th F irecracker Run followed by the water fight on Main St. Some of the funds raised will be used to provide support to families in career and educational planning through scholarships and grants. So please dig deep and support this worthy group.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 43. This year F igawi Charities is thrilled to support as our Primary Beneficiary - Holidays for Heroes. Their primary mission is to raise awareness about the sacrifices young men and women make to protect our freedom and prosperity. They seek to recognize and honor wounded veterans and their families by providing holiday experiences on Nantucket Island and scholarships for retraining. 27 years ago the Figawi Charity Ball began its unheralded run to being one of the most successful nights of fund raising on the Cape. Often copied but never equaled, what is the magic that makes this event so successful each year?

Two things come to mind:

Community participation And Extraordinary Volunteers.

The finest Food… Entertainment… Gambling… Flat Out Fun. A silent auction without equal, Extraordinary Raffle? Where else other than the Figawi Charity Ball and all thanks to the tireless efforts of our devoted committee. Our cover Artist Ronald Tinney did a spectacular job. Always our lead item for

45

the Silent Auction, we thank him for his time and donation. It has been very refreshing over the years when people planning events try to emulate the Figawi Ball format and want to know the secret ingredient. I know the answer. If you attended, take yourself to the closest mirror and look at yourself you are the magic that has made this event the annual success it is! By buying a ticket, supporting the raffle, silent auction and the gaming tables you provide the dollars that support the countless requests we get for dollars to support many worthy groups on the Cape. We have also been blessed with the continued support of many sponsors who have stayed with us for many years. Time Passes but Memories Last Forever – What memory will you make this year. For those of you who attend, Thank you all for the fantastic support. Now off to F igawi Race Weekend, and happy sailing to all. Leo Fein President Figawi Charities Inc.
