Countdown to Melges 24 US Nationals
Published on September 15th, 2021
The 2021 Melges 24 US National Championship has 26 entrants which will compete September 17-19 on Lake St. Clair in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. At the top of the list of notable front runners is seven-time National Champion Brian Porter on Full Throttle going for what could be a record-setting eighth title.
However, Porter will be pressed hard by former U.S. National Champion (2016) Bora Gulari who will have 2016 World Champions Stu McNay and David Hughes onboard. International Melges 24 Class Chairwoman Laura Grondin racing Dark Energy, Bruce Ayres’ Monsoon, and Gold Cup Regatta winner Harry Melges IV sailing Zenda Express are on the radar and worthy of the win.
Eleven teams have registered for the Corinthian Division.
