The Melges 24 Worlds are fast approaching and we are looking forward to it after a great Bacardi Miami Sailing Week! Just a friendly reminder of the Sail22 Melges 24 Corpus Christi Worlds Tuning Event to be held April 30-May 1. We currently have one boat registered and we really need at least ten boats to run a Worlds tuning event. Teams not doing the Worlds in Corpus are still invited and encouraged to participate. Please let us know if you are planning to attend, even if you have not registered. Please spread the word and pass this on to others who may be interested. We look forward to seeing teams in Charleston in a few weeks for another great event. Feel free to let us know if you have any questions or suggestions for the tuning event.
I made it out to the Melges 20 and Melges 24 course yesterday to catch some of their action, along with the Vipers again. Great conditions with plenty of breeze! When you find your team, click the sail number in the links below the photo to be taken to the entire team gallery. Enjoy!
Day one of Bacardi Miami Sailing Week 2011 for the sport boats only allowed for one race due to major thunderstorms that moved through Biscayne Bay. I made it out to the Viper course and had a chance to take in the action there. Enjoy the full gallery of Viper Racing on Sail22Photography.com! I’ll add more photos to the gallery from the regatta for the Vipers and will be adding other galleries for the other classes. Hopefully tomorrow, there will be plenty of racing on all of the courses!
SOAK sent us a sample of their new Halyard Clip and all we have to say at Sail22 is…what’s not to like about it!?!? A simple, practical solution to an always nagging problem for any boat that hatch flies their spinnaker. It’s $19.95 and available in our store. We’ll even ship it to you for free in the US! We ordered a batch, but they are going fast…so get your order in today. We’ll have some at Bacardi Cup next week, so feel free to stop by the Sail22 Support Trailer at Shake-a-Leg and check one out in person. Ed’s using it this weekend on the Etchells in San Diego, so he’ll be able to tell you all the details!
