Get ready for exciting Melges 24 racing on Pensacola Bay this fall. The Pensacola Yacht Club and the US Melges 24 Class Association will bring on three fall regattas within two weeks of each other that offer M24 class one-design racing at its finest...

Come to Pensacola for the new West Florida Open Regatta Challenge (WFOrc) "SpookFest" on Halloween weekend Oct 29-30 followed 10-days later by the 2022 US Melges 24 National Championship scheduled for Nov 10-13 on the club's annual Bushwhacker Cup weekend.

Pensacola YC's traditional Jubilee one-design class regatta on the weekend between the WFOrc and the Melges 24 Nationals may also feature Melges 24 racing based on class participation.

Registration is now open for the 2022 US Melges 24 National Championship. The Notice Of Race is posted directly at Yacht Scoring here, — and may also be accessed here, and here.

As a warm-up, bonus, pre-nationals regatta for the Melges 24 Class, the traditional WFORC fall regatta is being reformatted and moved to the last weekend in October, Halloween. The traditional offshore event will be expanded to include an inshore sportboat circle for Melges 24, VX One and Viper classes. This will be in addition to the usual PHRF racing and to another new inshore multihull circle. The new NOR is still a work in progress.

Boat storage for Melges 24's before, between and after the regattas is available. Contact the Pensacola YC dockmaster Greg Spitzer to reserve your space— call 850-433-8804 ext. 108 or email with your request for storage.

The USM24CA noted, "The U.S. Melges 24 Class is really excited about the forthcoming Nationals at Pensacola Yacht Club this fall. It is a first-class venue with so much to offer in the way of great racing conditions, race management and shoreside activities. We always look forward to rounding out the racing season in Pensacola and this regatta will be no exception. It is the grand finale of our National Ranking Series and we anticipate crowning the overall and Corinthian 2022 Champions. Pensacola YC has always been the perfect partner in hosting Melges 24 Class events — they know we like to have a lot of fun on-the-water and off!

Pensacola Yacht Club has been home to the annual Melges 24 Bushwhacker Cup — including the Atlantic Coast and Gulf Coast regional class championships since 2019.

Race information for both the WFORC and the Bushwhacker Cup... NOR/SI's, regatta entry, team lists and official notices... is all on respective Yacht Scoring web pages. More information here...
