Next stop on the 2007 Melges 32 Racing Circuit is the very prestigious ACURA Miami Grand Prix in Miami, Florida. Escape the cold! See the below message from Premiere Racing's own, Peter Craig.

The Melges 32 fleet put on a terrific show in Key West! We had a record number of journalists and photographers on site, which bodes well in getting the good word out regarding your growing class.

With Key West behind us, preparations are focused on March’s Acura Miami Grand Prix. I hope you can join us for 4 great days of racing. The ocean waters just off Miami produce superb racing conditions, and the South Beach nightlife is renowned. In addition to our usual daily and series trophies, The Acura Grand Prix Trophy will go to the deserving Melges 32 owner with the lowest cumulative points for both Key West Race Week and the Miami Grand Prix.

For those who have not received earlier communications or had an opportunity to visit our event web site, there are a number of important regatta and logistics related items that you should be aware of:
