Ever wonder how three months of Midwest sailing can produce Rolex Yachtspersons of the Year? #1 ranked Women's Matchracing Champions? College sailors of the year? Youth Champs winners? They often and almost always sailed X boats. Wonder who else can boast 100+ privately-owned youth boats in a region. And don't think that is not an important factor in youth progressing to adult boats. It all begins with our successful X boat. Our retention and participation in adult scows is exploding.
11 of 15 Melges 17 ILYA Championship sailors
9 of 81 MC ILYA Championship sailors
19 youth on our powerful 20 A scows
46 on our 31 E ILYA Championship scows
43 on our 43 C scows but here is there the youth outnumber the other fleets in skipper participation
9 on our 10 I-20s
These numbers speak volumes about our youth participation. So . . . get ready for the 2015 youth season. Used X boats are at a premium due to the long life of a well-built boat and the growth of the fleet. White Bear added 8 new boats to its starting line and 5 traveled to events in their first year. It is an amazing testament to the love of the X.
Lakes, it is time to take a lesson from the Cs and Es where new boats have re-invigorated homelakes. New boats for the top of the fleet allow used boats for homelake growth. Melges is always open to Fall discounts to assist in their production planning. Meet together as a homelake and make plans for growth in your fleet NOW!!!
Melges is cranking up the X boat machine for 2015. New boats, new ideas and more youth sailing FUN. Our Fall Savings Campaign kicks off on September 1 and lasts through October 15th. During this time you can save a considerable amount of money on Melges X equipment.
Yacht Clubs can also get involved with a fleet purchase and special pricing. 3 or more new boats would need to be ordered from your specific yacht club. By placing this order you can save even more money on a new Melges X Boat.
Please contact Harry Melges, Jim Gluek or Andy Burdick for specifics. We will be happy to help you and your family.
