Melges 32 Corinthian Class Rules Issued

25 September 2015

In an effort to control costs and level the playing field at Melges 32 Class Sanctioned events, a separate Corinthian Class has been established. Listening to the feedback of owners interested in Corinthian Class racing, the following rules have been created and will be piloted at the 2015/16 Blue Water Series, and the 2016 World Series:

- Maintain Updated Class Membership

- 1 Industry Professional (Sailmaker, Boatbuilder, Boat Captain, Spar builder, rigger, etc) as a member of the crew, no other Group 3 sailors allowed. Based on the Owners discretion, the Industry Pro may or may not be paid for participating in the event. 

- Standard class rules pertain to amount of sails purchased and used during a calendar year. 

Prizes will be awarded to top performing Corinthian teams at Class Sanctioned events, along with overall scoring throughout a series of events. 


The Melges 32 Class is very excited to welcome Corinthian racing at every class event in the future and is optimistic that this will grow attendance at all class events in the future.
