The 2021 Melges 24 World Championship will take place in Charleston, USA, over the 9 to 17 April, immediately following Charleston Race Week.
As hard as it may be to believe, it has been a full year since the originally scheduled 2020 event was officially postponed due to the progressing COVID-19 pandemic.
The early entry deadline for the Worlds is 28 February 2021, with the final entry deadline for Open and Corinthian teams is 3 April, so there is still plenty of time to register, plan and participate.
Can’t travel with your boat? For those experiencing tighter border restrictions than others, the US Melges 24 Class Association (USM24CA) has procured a very nice selection of used boats available for charter in the USA which can be found online at usmelges24.com.
