"I really like the concept of this project. It really helps to limit the arms race, not just in terms of money and assets, but also in terms of how much time you have to put into your sailing." Hear from owner Cory Sertl after her first day on the water.

What makes the Melges IC37 Class stand out is the strict class rules. The rules are intended to keep costs down, support amateur sailing, promote women in our sport and maintain equality of boats over time.
