The World, European and North American Ranking Series commenced in 2001 and each year attracts competitors from across the globe to compete at these feature events. In 2013 the Australasian Ranking Series have been commenced as well.
The purpose of the IMCA World Ranking is to encourage Melges 24 owners and sailors to travel and attend key regattas. Each season the IMCA reviews the program and scoring system to ensure that it continues to meet the Melges 24 Owner and sailor needs.
How does it work?
The scoring system for the Melges 24 European Sailing Series is defined in the Notice of Race for the series. For the North American, Australasian and World Ranking the same scoring system will apply. Notice of Races of the North American and Australasian Rankings will be posted here soon.
