ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL MELGES IC37 CLASS ASSOCIATION

From its inception, the Melges IC37 Class was developed to create a racing experience unlike any other. The IC37 by Melges is an innovative amateur one-design sailboat designed to race with a crew of family and friends that makes possible what many sailors seek: the opportunity to test their preparation, skill, and teamwork on the most level playing field available. The IC37 is designed by Mills Design, built by Westerly Marine and FIBRE Mechanics, and managed by Melges Performance Sailboats. Selected by Sailing World Magazine as the 2019 Corinthian Boat of the Year, the IC37 is the boat of choice for top international competitions such as the Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup and the Canada’s Cup.
