With still 6 months to go the Melges 24 Canadian Nationals, hosted by Kelowna YC, has already racked up over 25 entries. That’s already an excellent number for a Canadian regatta, and more than the number of local boats in BC. This is shaping up to be a great regatta. Get signed up, or get in touch with the fleet through their website – apparently there are still some charters to be had. http://melges24nationals.ca/
