Possibility of holding the Melges 24 Worlds in Miami in late 2020 under consideration

March 31, 2020 – Miami, USA – After cancelling the 2020 Melges 24 World Championship, that was expected to be held in Charleston, SC, USA on May 1-9, the International Melges 24 Class Association has been working to find a solution that will have positive effects both for our association and sailors, such as finding the way still to have the Worlds in 2020.
 
Here's the message of Laura Grondin, the Chair of the International Melges 24 Class Association.
 
Dear Melges 24 sailors,
 
The International Melges 24 Class Association is hoping that we will be able to host a World Championship in Miami, Florida in late 2020. 

Obviously, our ability to make that happen is contingent upon how the worldwide COVID-19 crisis evolves. At this point, we simply want to convey our aspiration. We plan to be back in touch in about a month with more details so that teams can begin to plan.

Every single Melges 24 sailor has been impacted by the global pandemic; some circumstances are much more extreme and severe than others. 

I hope that our next shared experience will be planing through the warm waters under bright sunshine off the coast of Miami.

My best wishes for the safety and health of you, your family and your friends.
