Melges 24 Norwegian Championship 2023

May 26, 2023 - Kristiansand, Norway - The last weekend in August (25 to 27 August) Christiansand Seilforening will host the Norwegian Melges 24 Championship 2023.

Geir Odmar Heldal: "The local fleet is coming out in force with several boats that - they say - will give a good account of themselves.

Three days of sailing, in perhaps Norway's best conditions, are planned. Sun and summer, in fine winds and with challenging currents. In August, the chances of getting all this are very high.

On the social side, a programme is planned that will cover most needs. Ideas have been put forward for everything from a DJ and cool summer drinks to good meals for hungry sailors. So there are all chances for a memorable event!" 

Stay tuned to for updated information. Either way, the weekend must be booked, and if you're not sailing yourself, there's always a need to support staff for the event. It will be fun either way!

In 2023 the Norwegian National Championship will be valid as the ranking event for the Melges 24 European Sailing Series.
