Sail22 & Sailing Updates to Support the 2011 Melges 24 Nationals in Lake Geneva ~ Sailing Regatta Coverage
Sail22 is in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin with our Sail22 Regatta Support Trailer for the 2011 Melges 24 Nationals hosted by Lake Geneva Yacht Club on September 30th through October 2nd. The Melges 24 is one of our favorite classes to work with and we look forward to seeing everyone! We are fully stocked with our New England Ropes cordage wall, some great new Sail22 gear, go fast Melges 24 parts and more! Sail22 will be providing our Sailing Updates live regatta coverage of the event to keep those who aren’t able to be in Lake Geneva updated with mark roundings and live blogging from on the water. Becky will also be photographing the Nationals and posting images on Sail22 Photography.
Just under twenty boats are already here prepping for what will be the third largest Melges 24 Nationals in the history of the class. It definitely makes sense since Lake Geneva Yacht Club is the home club of Melges Boat Works. We stopped by Zenda today to say hello and pick up a few things. Always a great place to visit!
We’re also bringing our newest member of the Sail22 team with us, Dana Keller, who has joined our company to provide even better customer service and support to our clients. Stop by and meet Dana at the Sail22 Support Trailer to say hello!
Some favorite Sail22 gear is back in stock! We’ve added the gear to our Always Happy Life online store while we toy with the idea of a separate Sail22 store. It’s nothing fancy, but it allows our clients to access certain products with free shipping in the USA. If you’re outside the USA and interested, please just send us an email and we’ll get you sorted.
Sail22 Hike Damn It! Technical ShirtsWe’ve even customized this for a few teams! These can be customized for an additional fee. They come in short sleeved and long sleeved in black or silver.
Sail22 Favorite Technical Hoodie We don’t leave home without these and once you have one, you won’t either. Sail22 large logo on the front and Always happy. Never satisfied.™ on the back. A great layering piece!
Newly redesigned with our “Always happy. Never satisfied.™ ” motto.
Sail22 Gill Floppy Hat
Finally a floppy hat that fits well! Even more stylish with the Sail22 logo!
Sail22 Gill Technical UV Hat
A fast drying hat that is cool and light weight. We think that we improved the look by adding our Sail22 logo embroidered on the front.
Sail22 Gill Pro Visor
Ed’s a visor guy and pretty picky about them. He really likes this one and they look great with the Sail22 log on the front. We’ve heard they quickly become a favorite!
Just in time for Charleston Race Week and the Melges 24 Worlds in Corpus are brand new Melges 24 parts and some popular ones back in stock! They are available in limited quantities, so make sure to get your order in as soon as possible. Orders can be placed by phone at 575-889-0022 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The new RBS Carbon Tapered Backstay Flicker…half the weight of the original and much more flexible! Easier to add a ton of backstay in heavy air sailing which we’ll see in Charleston and Corpus Christi. We had some in Miami for Bacardi Race Week and sold out, but now have more in stock.
Another favorite new item is the Soak Halyard Clip! These great plastic clips ($19.95) allow you to anchor the halyard for going upwind and then it self-releases when you hoist the kite. More details in this Soak Halyard Clip blog dedicated to it.
