The 2023 Melges 15 Winter Series opened this past weekend, January 7-8, in Jensen Beach, FL. With seventy boats on the line, it was the largest class event to date since the boat’s launch in Spring 2020. “This event has been a great opportunity to see what this fleet is all about,” remarked Bryan Stout. “I don’t think any of us had seen a fleet of this size before and for something that came out so recently, we’re all learning together. We feel like we came in with good experience and we’re coming out even better.”

Congratulations to Melges 15 veteran Emily Haig, with Zoey Fisher on their overall win. Haig has been involved with the Class since the first event occurred in her hometown of Beach Haven, NJ.

This marked the first of three events continuing February 25-26 and culminating in the Midwinter Championship March 24-26. Full results and photos are available on melges15.com.
