MELGES WORLD LEAGUE

The Melges 14 World League debuted this year with great success in the United States where the Melges 14 has become, in a very short time, another best seller of the shipyard based in Zenda, Wisconsin.

After the United States, it is now time for the Melges 14 to arrive in Europe where the Melges World League, which already involves the Melges 32 and Melges 20 classes, opens its doors to the Melges 14 sailors.

The Melges 14 is a boat dedicated to those who love the more sporting sailing style but do not want to give up the community, quality and performance of Melges Performance Sailboats. All offered to the Melges 14 sailors with the same hospitality format and organization of the renowned Melges World League, the reference point for one-design sailing in the worldwide scenario.

The regatta program included fun social events and highly organized racing from Melges Europe. The event in Marina di Scarlino is supported by the local partners Club Nautico Marina di Scarlino, Marina di Scarlino, Vivaio Principina, Birrificio Forte, la Bottega di Adò. Melges Europe e Melges World League strongly support One Ocean Foundation and Charta Smeralda.
