Cesar Gomes Neto continues his Megles 20 victory dance with a first place finish at the Pacific Coast Championship last month and third at the North American Championship this past weekend. It has been an amazing season for Neto and his boat, Portobello, and for Quantum sailors in the Melges 20 class.
Quantum’s Melges 20 stock sails have kept their teams in the top ten and on the podium all year. In addition to Neto’s dominance, Michael Kiss on Bacio has often finished in the top ten this season, producing second and third place finishes at the North American and Pacific Coast Championship. The race-proven sails have given Quantum sailors a distinct advantage this year. Recent wins include:
