In just a few weeks, some of the most talented sailors on the planet will gather in Annapolis, MD, to decide just who the best Melges 24 sailor in the world is. Weighing in to support this battle of the giants as the confirmed title sponsor will be Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis, the Baltimore-Annapolis area’s only Elite Lexus dealership for six consecutive years.

Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis, the International Melges 24 Class and regatta host Eastport Yacht Club all share a common passion - to provide their customers and members with a world-class owner/membership experience. They strive to provide superior products and service and their shared goal is to always exceed expectations.

“To race a Melges 24 is without doubt the pinnacle of grand-prix sports-boat sailing. To drive a Lexus is to experience the perfect blend of automotive performance and luxury," states Paul LaRochelle, General Manager of Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis. "We look forward to a thrilling competition and a hugely rewarding partnership.”

Throughout the regatta, competitors will be able to inspect a wide range of Lexus luxury automobiles, which will be on display at the regatta center. The regatta will open with the Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis Welcome Reception on Sunday 25 October and will close with a spectacular Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis Gala Prize Giving Party on Saturday 31 October.

“We are thrilled to welcome Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis aboard as title sponsor,” says Liz Filter, Chairman of the Eastport Yacht Club’s organizing committee.

The Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis Melges 2009 24 World Championship will be hosted by the Eastport Yacht Club, Annapolis, from October 23 until October 31 and already 54 crews from across the USA, Canada and Europe have confirmed their entries. Entries close on October 9
