Dear Melges 24 Teams,

It is with great disappointment that the difficult decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Melges 24 U.S. National Championship originally scheduled for October 15-18 at Tred Avon Yacht Club.

This decision has been made based on regulations limiting the size of events and the perceived risks of travelers to the elderly community in Oxford, MD. We continue to be optimistic and pray that the situation surrounding COVID-19 improves.

Please know that your board is working hard, exploring options for a safe return to conducting our Class championships. I am confident that we will be on the same starting line soon. In the meantime, stay healthy and safe.

Megan A. Ratliff, President
U.S. Melges 24 Class Association
