Middelfart in Denmark is welcoming Melges 24 fleet for the Worlds 2023

June 24, 2023 - Middelfart, Denmark - To be held in Middelfart, Denmark from June 24th to July 1st , Go Sail and the International Melges 24 Class Association along with Danish Melges 24 Class are welcoming you to Middelfart to celebrate 30 years of Melges 24 racing and Midsummer in Denmark! 

We are excited to see 47 teams from 13 nations preparing to sail for the Melges Performance Sailboats Trophy, which now is even more precious when the Melges 24 Class just recently said goodbye to The Legend - Buddy Melges, who gave us the best performance boat, the MELGES 24! Corinthian teams will race for the Challenge Henri Samuel Corinthian World Championship Trophy 

Since today the Event Technical Committee led by IM24CA Chief Measurer Branko Parunov will assist the teams through the sails and boat inspections, while the Race Office will be busy with the registrations and crew-weighings - to ensure fair racing and compliance with the class rules.
