Register Now: 2023 North American Championship, September 14-17
July 30, 2023 - Toronto, Canada - The 2023 Melges 24 North American Championship will be hosted by the National Yacht Club in Toronto, Canada on September 15-17th. It’s the perfect warm-up/lead-up to the U.S. Nationals in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin on October 6-8.
Both events round out the 2023 Quantum Melges 24 Great Lakes Cup Series.
Toronto is located on the north shore of Lake Ontario, a simple 3-hour drive from Detroit, a nine-hour drive from Chicago and Annapolis.
The National Yacht Club is virtually a 5-minute walk to the Billy Bishop Airport (Toronto City Centre) with many flights a day to Chicago and Newark. The club has a dedicated dry sail area and crane to rig up and launch, a brand new yacht basin and it’s only a 10-minute sail to the racing area.
The Club is located city side on the downtown waterfront amidst many hotel and Airbnb options, and is an outstanding choice of great eateries.
There are currently a dozen good boats registered right now but the Class wants more…a lot more!
Racing will happen south of the city and the islands right out on Lake Ontario — early fall breezes and a wide-open venue will make for some great racing.
Early Entry Ends August 1, 2023
Covered in the registration fee is a Prime Rib cook-out on Friday night, and a banquet buffet on Saturday in the dining room, entertainment included.

and a bunch more that you’ll find out about when you arrive.
