Dates announced for Annapolis regatta

Monday January 14th 2002, Author: Fiona Brown, Location: United States
The 2002 International Melges 24 North American Championships will be held in Annapolis, Maryland from April 1-6, 2002. The members of Melges 24 fleet and Eastport Yacht Club are proud to host this prestigious event and look forward to welcoming the top one-design keelboat sailors.

A Chesapeake Bay springtime offers excellent conditions both on and off the water, and exceptionally close and exciting racing is guaranteed. Typical temperatures in this area reach an average high of 65 degrees and an average low of 45 degrees. Local sailing conditions will ensure plenty of action and great photographs.

Racing begins on Wednesday April 3, and Principal Race Officer Jeff Borland plans ten races for the participants. Full days of sailing and full evenings of socializing are scheduled. PRO Borland has made it his mandate for everyone to have a terrific and memorable time while sailing the North American Championships: he happens to be the new Commodore of Eastport Yacht Club as well! Being an avid sailor himself, he knows what it takes to put on a first-class event.
