Quantum Melges 24 expert and pro-sailor Scott Nixon and Melges 24 sail designer Chris Williams have put together a comprehensive clinic to help you and your team crush it on the racecourse this season. Whether you're looking to simply get a better handle on Melges 24 sailing or want to dominate at the North Americans this August, this clinic is designed to enable you to maximize your team's performance with a holistic look at tactics, tuning, trim, and more. 

The clinic is free of charge to all Melges 24 teams and will consist of a mix of classroom, dockside, and on-the-water instruction, including video debriefs daily.


To secure your spot at the clinic, please complete the required sections of the form on this page. Please don't forget to provide the name and email for your full crew. If you do not, you will not be registered and may lose your spot. Once you successfully complete the form, you will be redirected to a confirmation page and receive a confirmation email. Your mobile number will be used to communicate time sensitive updates about the clinic, such as weather delays or schedule changes.

If your boat is not located at the Grand Traverse Yacht Club or the neighboring Elmwood Township Marina, we will contact you to help facilitate onsite boat logistics.

All individual sailors will receive a swag bag, as well as follow-up information and resources after the event. If the clinic is full, we will do our best to accommodate all teams on the wait list with digital support and instruction after the clinic. If you need to cancel or if you can't make it, but would like to receive follow-up information and resources, please email Libby Tomlinson at communications@quantumsails.com.


The clinic kicks off with an on-land rigging and tuning session Friday at 4 PM. Plan to have your boat set up and rigged for a smooth launch Saturday morning at 8 AM.
