Ullman Sails dominates at the major Melges 24 regattas, reflecting our commitment to being the world leader in one design and performance sailing.
The key to Melges 24 sailing is not memorizing this racing guide, but understanding how the settings affect the boat and how it feels. The goal is to be able to feel that something is wrong and quickly fix the problem to keep your boat moving fast.
We have found the measurements and settings in this guide to be the fastest for the Melges 24. Since crew and sailing conditions vary, you may find slightly different settings are better for you. Go fast and have fun!
