A Message from U.S. Melges 24 Class President, Megan Ratliff

This spring we watched racing come to an abrupt halt. Large events including our World Championship were cancelled amid COVID-19 outbreak. These decisions were made for the safety of the competitors, race officials, volunteers, as well as world travel restrictions. It has been difficult to be away from our boats, our friends, and the love we share for our sport. The good news is the horizon is looking brighter! Many districts have resumed club racing and would love to accommodate additional competitors. I have included a current schedule below.
