Melvin wins A Scow Nationals

It was a stellar weekend in Madison, Wisconsin for all of the mighty Melges A Scows racing – 15 total of these 38-foot historical beauties. Marked by epic conditions, tight racing and some of the best nightlife around Madison, Lake Mendota did not disappoint. In typical A Scow fashion, the regatta came down to the last race, with Pat Hughes’s Melvin barely edging out the victory over T. Freytag and his MadCap team. Congratulations to Pat Hughes’s Melvin team on their A Scow National Championship title! Alongside Hughes sailed Petey Crawford, Coye Harrett, Harry Melges III, Colin Rowe, Shannon Smith, and Hans Zinn.
