October typically holds the best sailing conditions on the Choptank River and in Oxford with winds between 10-15 knots, gusting to 20. The water is super flat and allows for very fast sailing upwind and downwind.

The Notice of Race (NOR) and online registration are currently in progress and will be available shortly.

Until then, all Melges 24 teams worldwide are asked to save these dates and stay close to the U.S. Melges 24 Class Association website: usmelges24.com.
