by Hannah Noll 1 Mar 2019 23:02 PST 1-3 March 2019

Livin it up on the first day of Melges 14 Midwinters! Sarasota brought sunny skies & breeze of 8-14. Harry Melges IV leads with three bullets in three races followed by Harry Melges III, Jeff Solum, Eddie Cox and Adam Ankers.

The Melges Team hosted a Melges 14 racing clinic the day before Melges 14 Midwinters began. The clinic started with a chalk talk and video session, then on the water for practice starts, boat handling drills, and practice races. The clinic wrapped up for the day with a video debrief and a Q&A session with the Melges Team.

Come race with the Melges 14 fleet at the upcoming Melges 14 World League events. 4 in Europe and 4 in North America. Next up: Melges 14 Euro Warm-Up Regatta (Liguria, Italy) and Melges 14 Spring Championship (Chattanooga, Tennessee).
