MEASUREMENT
The International Melges 32 Class Association is allowing for conducting measurement for the 2014 World Championship well in advance of the event, beginning in Newport. If you wish, to have your boat measured early, please coordinate with Official International Melges 32 Class Measurer Egidio Babbi immediately. He already has a few teams lined up for early August. Now would be a good time to get this taken care of, since the Worlds is taking place in close proximity to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
