Melges 24 Mainsails

Melges 24 Fusion M Main

Using premium Fusion M materials and iQ Technology®, Quantum designers are able to create unprecedentedly fast, repeatable, and high-performing sails. Case in point: our updated all-purpose Melges 24 mainsail that passed its debut outing at the 2022 World Championships with flying colors.

Durable, powerful, and fast, each sail delivers the performance you need from start to finish. Whether you're racing locally or in the Worlds, Quantum's Melges 24 experts are available to help with your upcoming campaign.
INCLUDES: Battens, bag, sail numbers, spreader window, vision window along the foot, class royalty, ISAF/IHC measurement sticker, and draft stripes.

Melges 24 Headsails

Melges 24 Fusion M Jib

Quantum's all-purpose Melges 24 jib works seamlessly with our mainsail to make a boat fly without compromising ease of handling or repeatability. Revised for 2022, the new shape has slightly less luff curve, more twist in the head to cover a wider wind range, and delivers a larger steering groove to help in challenging conditions. Using premium Fusion M materials and iQ Technology®, our designers are able to create fast, durable, high-performing, and championship-winning sails.

INCLUDES: Three vertical RBS battens, roll bag, vision window, class royalty, ISAF measurement sticker, and draft stripes.

Melges 24 Spinnakers

Melges 24 Z1 AP Runner Airx 650

Proven in the 2022 Melges World Championships, the Quantum Z1 AP Runner is an all-new, class-leading design. Perfect in 9 to 18 knots, this all-purpose downwind sail delivers the power you’re looking for. The Z-1 is maximum-size, class legal, and constructed out of Airx 650 or Dynakote 75 for durability and great shape retention. Available in a variety of colors and patterns, be sure to ask Quantum Melges 24 experts about add-on graphic options.

INCLUDES: Sail bag, adjustable luff and leech lines, class royalty, and ISAF measurement sticker.

Melges 24 V4 Reacher Airx 650

The Quantum V4 is your go-to for bow up and jib out planning conditions. The new V4 is optimized for the 0-8 knot TWS range as well as 19+ knots TWS. The V4’s higher clew and straighter luff allow the sail to twist off so the boat unloads and sails faster at higher angles. Even in waves and chop when fully loaded, the new max-sized, class-legal design has improved helm feel for easier driving. Top teams from the 2022 World Championships showed how this sail handles big breeze and still maintains control. Available in AirX 650 or Dynakote75 and in a variety of colors and patterns, be sure to ask Quantum Melges 24 experts about add-on graphic options.

INCLUDES: Sail bag, adjustable luff and leech lines, class royalty, and ISAF measurement sticker.

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."
