POETIC START TO THE 2019 MELGES IC37 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Newport serves up the perfect challenge for Melges IC37 sailors on a memorable first day of racing at this inaugural event.
With the first summer sailing season for the Melges IC37 Class culminating in this inaugural Melges IC37 National Championship, it seems poetic that the Members Only syndicate team top the overall standings after issuing a “one-two punch” on Day 1. Two races were held in a light six- to eight-knot breeze, sunshine, and flat water – a perfect start to this prestigious event. A mere six points separate second through 10th place in the standings setting the tone for the rest of the Championship.
