2018 Melges 20 U.S. National Championship – May 18-20 – Carolina Yacht Club
Teams have traveled from near and far to compete, including some Class cornerstones and new faces. The talent is evenly stacked with Rob Wilber’s CINGHIALE, Daniel Thielman’s KUAI and father and son double effort – Jason Michas on MIDNIGHT BLUE and Alexis Michas’ MIDNIGHT SUN. Reigning World Champion Drew Freides’ PACIFIC YANKEE will for sure be in the mix of tough competition.
The Melges 20 Class is thrilled to welcome back the magnificent Rhonda Joyce on GRINNING STREAK, the one and only entry from the grand land of Canada. Back on the track we’ll see Wes Whitmyer’s SLINGSHOT, John Brown’s BLIND SQUIRREL, Paul Reilly’s RED SKY SAILING TEAM, Russ Lucas’ SHIMMER, Jim Wilson’s OLEANDER and Bob Moran’s BOBSLED.
In hopes of proving the value of local knowledge, all eyes and bets are on Carolina Yacht Club favorite and long time Melges Performance Sailboats owner/helmsman Guy Mossman with X.
