Melges Performance Sailboats is thrilled to welcome Vela Sailing Supply as the newest Melges 15 dealer serving Texas. Situated in Rockwall, TX since 2011, Vela is a large online supplier of marine hardware and is an expert in a variety of classes.

One of the founders of Vela Sailing, Rod Favela is no stranger to the Melges brand as an MC Scow sailor, himself. “Our main goals are to provide solutions to sailors and promote the growth and sustainability of the sport we are all so passionate about,” explains Favela. “And with that, we are sure the Melges 15 goes right in line with our philosophy.

Texas offers a wide range of fantastic sailing venues: from the waters of the Gulf to lakes spread all over the state. Young adults, couples, and friends are already finding out the advantages that the Melges 15 presents and all the boxes that it checks. Favela concludes, “All of us at Vela are sure that all sailors in Texas will quickly realize the same we see in it and soon will be present at many shores across the South.”
