The Melges 24 is a high-performance speed machine with an open cockpit, retractable bowsprit, and an asymmetrical spinnaker. This boat is a joy to sail and is easier than most boats because there are no overlapping jibs, winches, or spinnaker poles. The jib is on a furler and can be easily rolled up or unrolled from the cockpit. This is a great boat to charter if you want to learn some spinnaker handling and experience some downwind speed. It is available for skippered or bareboat charters provided you have an experienced operator. The boat accommodates up to 5 sailors total so 4 sailors total if you require a captain. Get your group together to experience sailing at its best. All participants get to learn how to steer and trim sails. There is a small cabin on the boat to place belongings. Please feel free to bring whatever you would like to eat or drink. We have 2 sailing times on Saturdays and Sundays from 2PM to 5 PM and 5:30-8:30 PM. The boat is available from June 1st through end of September 30 2024. If you have any questions, we can answer them through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Send Inquiry” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.

My Grandfather taught me how to sail when I was 5 and I've loved it ever since. I bought my first Laser sailboat when I was 13 and was on Canada's National Sailing Team for 4 years trying for the 1996 Olympics. I've sailed 11 World Championships all over the world and coached performance sailing with International Sailing Academy in Mexico. I love taking people out and teaching them how to sail. It's easier than you think! - Nick
