26 boats are on the line in Macatawa, Michigan for the US Nationals as the Melges 20 Class begins the build toward their first-ever World Championship this December in the Florida Keys.  The world’s top sailors dot some boats while low-key family programs fill others; a nice mix for a sexy boat that’s now an International Class at a club that looks more Lake Garda than Lake Michigan for this well-branded Audi event.

Mer, Clean, and Petey are bringing their ‘lite’ OTWA program to the Melges 20 Facebook page; They’ll have photos, videos, and written updates, and a live-streaming program including tonight’s Opening Ceremony, an hour-long  ’chalk talk’ with M20 owners, crew, and pros on Friday, and Sunday’s awards.  Like the FB page for the most frequent updates; if all you want is live video, follow the Melges 20 Ustream page here.  Meredith Block photo.
