Congratulations to Tampa, Florida's James Whatmore on Goux Get Moma, 2009 Melges 24 Porsche Cup of Naples Champion. He is also the winner of the Porsche Cup of Naples Perpetual Trophy winner as well. The Porsche Cup was event number four of thirty nationwide regattas on the 2009 SLAM U.S.
Like New York the city that never sleeps' the International Melges 24 has a regatta circuit that never really stops.
The Melges 24 International season is now well underway and as most owners have finalised their teams and campaigns for the year ahead, we thought it would be a good time to have a look at who the potential star names might be in 2009.
The Norwegian Class invites you to join them for the combined ski and sailing competition in Oslo, Norway, on the 17th and 18th of April 2009.
Federico Michetti's first glimpse of a Melges 24 was in a sailing magazine in the late nineties. By his own admission he was not quite sure what to make of it.
