2010 Melges 32 Spring And Summer Racing Season In Overdrive

4 May 2010

The Melges 32 Spring and Summer racing schedule is in fast forward motion as the second edition of the 2010 Audi Sailing Series in Scarlino just concluded revealing reigning World Champion Pieter Taselaar on Bliksem as champion. In just a short week-and-a-half, more exciting racing awaits the international fleet. The very first Melges 32 European Championship takes place in Cagliari, Italy with 19 entries scheduled to appear and simultaneously, the East Coast Championship rocks Rye, N.Y. hosted by the American Yacht Club (also the location of the 2011 U.S. National Championship) with 13, double the participation level in 2009.

Shortly thereafter, we&rsquoll look to the warm month of June to Porto Cervo, Italy for the third Audi Sailing Series Event and Invitational, and Newport, R.I. for the Northeast Regatta happening simultaneously (25-27) on both sides of the Atlantic. The month of July is red hot. The final act of the 2010 European Audi Sailing Series takes place in Malcesine, Italy on beautiful Lake Garda on July 16-18. Completing the month perfectly, in exquisite Harbor Springs, Mich. USA the U.S. National Championship gets under way on July 29-August 1, where as many as 20 teams will take to the line. Every team that will be at Nationals anticipates heavy duty competition in San Francisco, Calif. at the 2010 World Championship on September 22-25, hosted by the St. Francis Yacht Club.

Because many of these events are concurrent, the below checklists and gentle reminders have been assembled for your convenience. Please read through each very carefully so that you and your team can plan accordingly. Best of luck and fast racing to all the teams. The IM32CA is excited about seeing each and every team on the line!
