C Scow Mainsails

C Scow Light-Medium Mainsail

C Scow Harecut Mainsail

This sail design has won more races than any other sail in C Scow sailing history. Most feel it is best in wind 15 knots and greater. However, the sail still performs in lighter conditions and remains ultra-quick even in the 0-5 knots range. When the breeze is on, look for the Harecut to make your Melges C Scow easier to sail and help you find that extra gear of speed.

Harry Melges III

Harry Melges III

Harry Melges III has worked in the sail making and sailboat building businesses his entire life. Growing up in a family business that supplies high-performance sails and sailboats, Harry was constantly thinking of ways to push the boundaries. How can we sail a boat faster, make a sail faster, or build a boat better?

Melges' mission has been to encourage more people to participate in the sport we love by bringing forward products that make boats easier and more fun to sail and improving quality and value with every new addition to the Melges line-up.

From a young age Harry spent much of his time crawling around the sail loft, learning from the artisans of the 70s and 80s how to make sails the "old school" way, something that is somewhat lost in our computer world. Taking that experience and blending it with today's technology has produced some of the fastest sails in our one-design classes through the years.

Harry is thrilled to be joining Quantum Sails, a company with values similar to Melges, and fully committed to promoting and growing the great sport of sailing while delivering the highest quality products at the best value. "I'm excited to be working with an American company that always makes the customers' needs its number-one priority."
