Irene Cup

This past weekend the Melges 20 class had to postpone its 2011 US National Championship in Newport, RI due to the fast approaching Hurricane Irene. 30 Teams from around North America wisely changed the date due to the eminent danger on the coastal areas of New England. Many of the local teams got together for some informal racing and named the 4 race series the Irene Cup on Friday!  Quantum teams covered the top spots taking 1st,3rd & 4th. Congratulations to Rob Wilbur and his Melges 20 team for the win! The US Nationals has been moved to Miami November 11-13. This event will be a great tune up for the December Gold Cup where the top teams from around the world will compete for the class’s first Gold Cup Championship.
