Melges 14 Fleet

Big Pimpin’

While retaining post-school sailors in the sport continues to present a challenge we all need to solve, High School sailing is one of the fastest growing sectors of sailing..  In the Midwest, Melges and The Great Lakes Boating Festival are doing their part to get those teens pumped up with the Melges 14 Stadium Sailing High School Challenge.  Here’s the release from Melges:

High school sailors will battle it out in the new Melges 14 at the Melges 14 Stadium Sailing High School Challenge on Sunday, May 21 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. It’s going to be an adrenaline-fueled regatta on a course close to the crowd. No doubt an exciting event for spectators in the stands. 18 short races in 4 hours start to finish. Participating schools (including Grosse Pointe North, Grosse Pointe South, Brother Rice, Liggett, Detroit Country Day and Cranbrook) will each choose one boy and one girl to represent their school in the Melges 14 Tour event.

Melges 14 Stadium Sailing is part of the Great Lakes Boating Festival, a three-day boat show at Grosse Pointe Yacht Club May 19-21 where the Melges 14 will be on display and available for anyone to demo.

Whatever your body type, one of the new sporty solos are sure to fit you, and if they all look as good as the Melges 14 fleet above, everyone is a winner.  Look at the excellent video of the 25-boat M-14 fleet in Sarasota last week and tell us with a straight face that you can’t wait to get in your Laser…we’re waiting…

Results are here in a regatta that saw age ranges from 13-74, with everything from weekend sailors to past Olympians.  Head to Melges on Facebook for more vids and info about the M14, and join the ‘Catch On’ thread for varied and mostly civil discussions about the M14/Dzero/Aero and the future of solo dinghy racing.
