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!

We arrived in Corpus Christi, Texas for the 2011 Melges 24 Worlds on Monday night with the Sail22 Support Trailer and a Melges 24. We hit the ground running and have the Sail22 Support Trailer set up and fully stocked to help any team. In order to support teams even more, our relationship with New England Ropes has grown with great new cordage in stock from now on and their logo on the Sail22 Support Trailer as a sponsor! We’re ecstatic to have Ed’s cousin, Bill Becker joining us full time at Sail22 to add even more support for teams. He’s a great addition to Sail22!
In addition to being on site with the Sail22 Support Trailer, we will be providing live coverage of the mark roundings, finishes and blogging from the racing with Sailing Updates for the Melges 24 Worlds. If you haven’t had a chance to it out yet, head over to Sailing Updates and see what it’s all about. We’re pretty proud of it and think GT3 Creative has done an awesome job making our ideas work! We’ve had some great feedback from the past events and know there will be many followers of the teams here in Corpus from all over the World. Look for great coverage on Sailing Updates by Sail22 (smartphone friendly even!) and Becky’s photography starting soon!
Charleston Race Week 2011 officially started today with great conditions and lots of racing. I made it out to cover all of the inshore courses and had a great ride with Andrew on Protector’s new 25 foot boat. It’s always wonderful to shoot from a Protector! Thanks again to Moose McClintock from Dimension Polyant for helping out with the blogging for Sailing Updates as well. He’ll be joining me on the water all weekend! Check out the Favorites Gallery I’ve started and will be adding to until the individual class and team galleries are ready for viewing.
