Cagliari, Italy (October 10, 2018) – The thirty-seven entrants participating in the 2018 Melges 20 World Championship would not get to sail the regatta as scheduled today. The start of the 2018 Melges 20 World Championship has been postponed due to a meteorological alert issued to the Race Committee today, which in turn, prompted them to postpone the kickoff for the racing portion of the event.
The warning signal for Thursday, October 11 is 12.00.
The schedule includes up to 10 races held October 10-13.
Defending World Champ Drew Freides’ Pacific Yankee team of Morgan Reeser and Charlie Smythe will seek to repeat over a field representing 11 nations (Australia, Czech Republic, Great Britain, Holland, Italy, Japan, Monaco, Poland, Russia, Sweden and the USA).
