Bronco takes a big bite out of Red at Melges 32 Worlds, San Francisco

Melges 32 fleet action

Melges 32 World Championship.

In the final race yesterday Bronco and Red were involved in a collision and thanks to the right connections both boats will race today. Red hoisted their protest flag however neither boat was at fault and the protest was dismissed.


A team from DCM Enterprises worked on both boats all night so they can rejoin the fleet today.

Morgan Gutenkunst who does the bow on Warpath said: 'It's very fortunate that the guys had resources handy to repair the damage and get back out on the water. With two days of racing left it would have been a real bummer to lose two teams.'

Currently the AP flag is up but racing is expected to commence at 1:00pm on the Berkeley Circle.
