“We are very happy to have Land Rover Kelowna as the title sponsor for this year’s event,” says Marc Noel, president of the Canadian Melges 24 Class Association. “Land Rover has a long standing history of supporting many international sailing regattas, and we are thrilled that they have chosen to support the Melges 24 Canadian Nationals in Kelowna.”
Noel is a driving force behind the local Melges 24 fleet and co-chair of the championships. He and his crew have competed in several North American Melges 24 races.
Kelowna Yacht Club has delivered exceptional national racing events in recent years and is in a prime position to host a top level North American Melges 24 race. An enthusiastic group of Melges 24 owners and crew compete weekly at Kelowna Yacht Club’s race nights, at Okanagan Lake regattas and national races across North America. Located on Okanagan Lake, the club is home to the largest fresh water marina in Canada.
With 30 boats already registered, Kelowna’s Melges 24 Nationals will launch a great start to the three-part North American tour heading to US Nationals in Lake Geneva in October and the world championship in Miami in late November.
The 2016 Melges 24 Canadian National Championship is open to all boats that meet the obligations of the Melges 24 Class rules and IM24CA rules, including class membership.
