Key West Race Week Prepares For Melges 24 Reboot
11 October 2012
Key West Race Week 2013 (20-25 January) is preparing for a reboot of the Melges 24 Class at this Classic U.S. Winter Regatta. For the past couple of seasons the Melges 24 entries (along with those of many other classes) have been down at Key West, but this year the Melges 24 fleet is working to galvanize the teams and ensure that the Melges 24 has a really strong presence at this "global shop window" regatta.
The organizers have taken onboard concerns about the cost of competing in Key West and have been working on some great deals and ways to make the event as affordable as possible. The package now offers a great value for your money and there is nowhere that delivers such brilliant racing and great partying as Quantum Key West provides each January.
Already, the entry list includes Riccardo Simoneschi, Brian Porter, Alec Cutler, Bruce Ayres, Rob Britts and Bora Gulari, all of whom are starting to wind up their campaigns for the Melges 24 Worlds in San Francisco in October, so get organized, enter now, enjoy some awesome racing and great partying! The Melges 24 will be on showcase and Key West is undoubtedly one of the best winter sun regattas in the World.
