E Scow Spring Racing © Melges Performance Sailboats

 
 
The elegant and sleek Melges E Scow is the pinnacle of high speed one-design racing for sailors in North America, from lakes and bays to protected ocean harbors. With over 70 boats regularly hitting the starting line at the National Championship, the Melges E Scow is an ever-growing fleet driven by a design that’s always innovating.
 
It's high performance, high quality, and high octane!
 
Each year, the season kicks off early on the warmer waters of Sarasota and Charleston. Cliff Russell won Sarasota, and young Augie Dale-Jewett won Charleston. The Midwest season starts in Lake Geneva every year. This past weekend was the Lake Geneva Spring Regatta and Zenda University – Congratulations to I-9 (Pete Strothman, Bri Porter, Corbett Porter, and John Kotovic) on their win. The National Class E Scow Association, Melges, and North Sails Zenda were proud to present the Zenda University E Scow Clinic the day before the regatta. It was a great day of practice racing, starts, and hands-on coaching all capped off by a drone video debrief. A great learning experience and a perfect way to start the season! The Melges Team has been running Zenda University courses for over 25 years. Also new, the Geneva Lake Sailing School held their Spring X Boat Clinic alongside the E Scow regatta, which meant moms and dads could race E Scows while kids had fun learning and sailing their X Boats. It was a fun-filled weekend for both parents and kids. Learn more about the upcoming X Boat season in the Melges X Boat Racing Report here: bit.ly/MelgesXBoatPreSeason2019.
 
There are lots of great racing opportunities this summer to race your E Scow all across the country. Be sure to support your local fleet by racing on a regular basis. Get ranked, party with a bigger group, and face off against some great competition at the regional and national E Scow regattas – Review the National Class E Scow Association's regatta lineup at e-scow.org.
