There are many early season scow events, however there is one championship that leads the way in terms of attendance and enthusiasm. The MC Zenda University Course and the MC Midwinter Championship.  There is a full week of excitement at the Lake Eustis Sailing Club in Eustis, Florida.  March 12-17, 2019 is the official date.

The Melges Zenda University is a coaching clinic that focuses on “everything MC.”  How to take care of your equipment, how to rig and tune your Melges MC and how to learn boat handling as well as racing skills.  Two days of comprehensive learning.

Once you complete the two-day clinic, you can roll right into the Midwinter Championship, which attracts nearly 75 boats every year. A perfect way to start out your scow sailing season! The racing is competitive and the camaraderie is special.

Each year, Melges and North Sails Zenda will bring new boats, new sails and equipment for the regatta attendees. It is the kickoff of scow racing and the enjoyment of the sport is at a high level.  It is time to go sailing again and Melges along with North Sails Zenda is proud to be able to assist in the excitement.

Melges Headquarters plans to build nearly 50 brand new MCs again this season.  Contact a Melges Representative to find out more about this fun boat and growing class association.  View new images at our brand new website

Keep Sailing!
