The Melges 24 offers a true thoroughbred sports boat which is both easy to sail but has that hidden last few points for the dedicated teams to work out. Sailing is fast and furious with an IRC TCC of 1.024 thats almost as quick as a 35' Foot performance yacht with all the thrills of 20 knots down wind in a fair breeze. You can buy a boat from £10,000 upwards. The flexible Carbon rig means you have total control of the oversized sail plan making the melges 24 suitable for light wind and heavy wind venues.
A Vibrant international class has a well supported European travellers series as well as a worlds and Europeans typically boasting around 100 boats with seperate prizes for corinthian crews, as well as the overall championship. The UK fleet has re-established its self on the East Coast at Suffolk Yacht Harbour with 10 boats regularly taking to the water. There are other boats at Brightlingsea, Mersea and Newcastle. British boats performed well in the European events with Miles Quiton and crew of Gill Racing winning the series. The melges out performs any other established sports boat.
