November 14, 2017 - Tampa, US - After eight races complete and two days of nicely breezed racing days, Kevin Welch's MIKEY won the 2017 Melges 24 Invitational Regatta hosted by the Davis Island Yacht Club on November 11-12. A total of eleven teams toughed out the Florida sunshine and warm temps for a great event.

Welch almost went unchallenged, but Chicago's Megan Ratliff on Decorum held her own to finish the event in second overall, followed by local favorite Alex Shafer on New Wave in third.

Successfully rounding out the top five was Lake Geneva's Steve Boho on The 300 and Bob Kroetsch's Rogue finishing respectively in fourth and fifth.
