UK Championships 2011
Congratulations AGAIN to Jamie Hamilton and the team sailing Madcap to win a closely fought contest for the 2011 championships which were held in September as part of the Jersey Regatta. The local fleet made the visitors very welcome and a very enjoyable long weekend was had both on and off the water.

The Class Association
What would you like to see happen? How should the class association be supporting and encouraging Melges 24 sailing? What is the best way to use the subs?
This is your opportunity to make things happen the way you want them to.
Would you like more UK class racing? Should the class put on a training and tuning event? Plans for UK class events in 2011 are being put together, but what would you like to happen? Let us know and we'll see if we can make it happen!
To compete in UK and international Melges 24 events, and some other regattas, the owner of the boat must be a full member of the class association, and the helm (if not the boat -owner) should be an associate member.
The rates for 2012 will be £85.00 for full membership (as the International Class subs have increased) but still £ 30.00 for associate membership, to cover the fees we have to pay to the International class association and to support and encourage Melges 24 sailing in the UK.
Please complete an application for and return it to the class secretary. The form can be found on the link from this page.
