OVER 60 MELGES AT YACHTING KEY WEST RACE WEEK 2001

With over 60 boats entered the Melges 24 class will be the biggest competing at Yachting Key West Race Week, which starts this Monday 15 January.

Defending champion Brian Porter is back determined to achieve a third consecutive win but with both Dave Ullman (also a three times consecutive winner) and Sydney Olympic Star Gold Medallist Mark Reynolds returning to the class for the event he will certainly have his work cut out.

A number of Europe's top sailors are also making the pilgrimage to the southernmost tip of Florida to race against America's best Melges crews including Rob Smith, Mike Budd, Keith Musto and Laurent Pages.
