History in the Making for Melges IC37 Class
Members Descend on the Waters of Newport, R.I. to Crown Their First-Ever National Champion
NEWPORT, R.I. (September 27, 2019) — On Friday, Sept. 27th, 20 teams will set up on the starting line to begin their conquest of the inaugural Melges IC37 National Championship title. This milestone event, hosted by the New York Yacht Club, will test competitors through eight scheduled races, across three days, in the very same waters they have sailed in all summer long. After over a month since their last event together, Melges IC37 sailors swarmed the New York Yacht Club, keen to complete registration, brush up on their boat handling and teamwork during the practice session, and reassemble to catch up with friends.
