Melges 24 World Championship is cancelled

Published on March 16th, 2020

Charleston, SC (March 16, 2020) – The 2020 Melges 24 World Championship, planned for May 1-9 in Charleston, has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This was not a decision we came to lightly and we know that many of you, myself included, will be disappointed,” noted Laura Grondin, the Chair of the International Melges 24 Class Association. “But our first responsibility is to the health and well-being of our sailors, our staff, and the community at large.

“We are all in uncharted waters. We have not even experienced yet, here in the US, the quarantines and shutdowns that our European friends are living.

“I give my sincerest thanks to our event organizer Randy Draftz for his dauntless spirit and energy towards producing a world class event and through this incredibly unreal week. We are already working on our future plans and will share news as soon as we can.”
