Melges 15 Mainsails

Melges 15 Mainsail

The Melges 15 mainsail has a versatile design that is fast, easy to trim and tune, and can power through chop as well as it glides through flatter seas. This all-purpose, one design mainsail can do it all.

Please purchase sails through Quantum Sails Zenda 262-275-1110.

Melges 15 Headsails

Melges 15 Jib

Like the mainsail, this dynamic, all-purpose headsail is built for ease of use without sacrificing speed and performance. It’s deep enough to keep you rumbling in light or choppy conditions, but can be trimmed flatter to excel in smooth water and moderate to heavy breeze.

Please purchase sails through Quantum Sails Zenda 262-275-1110.

Melges 15 Spinnakers

Melges 15 Asymmetrical Spinnaker

The asymmetric spinnaker boosts performance, while the single-pull launch and retrieval system makes handling the sail easy and fast. Designed with a versatile cut, this sail will allow you to pop up on plane and rip, or utilize a lower mode when needed.

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."
