FIRST IMPRESSIONS
Chris Fretz was among the first owners to sail the new Melges 15 in July. He and a group of friends came together to bring a fleet of Melges 15s to Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club in Beach Haven, NJ. "We love how quick the boat accelerates with the spinnaker. The M15 is easy to de-power and can sail under control in the breeze, but really lights up at the windward mark."
