2017 SO FAR
The 2017 season has been another one of growth for the U.K. Melges 24 class. With the two main fleets racing out of Haven Ports Yacht Club, and Colne yacht club, on the East coast. Together with great success in the European Sailing Series Events.
We are delighted to be welcoming new teams to our fleet, and are currently in talks with other interested parties about improving the fleets at Colne Yacht Club and Hartlepool Marina.
In Europe our teams have been busy at the first two events with "Gill Race Team" finishing a very close 2nd Corinthian, and "Imagine" finishing a well-deserved 10th overall in Slovenia. In Italy the "Gill Race Team" again took 2nd Corinthian and "Kiss" in 10th Place.
The first of our UK Summer Opens took place last weekend 3rd and 4th June, kindly run by HPYC and sailing in Dovercourt bay.
The results were
