In just three months time the International Melges 24 fleet will gather in Tallinn, Estonia, to prepare for its 2010 World Championship and lining up to support the event as title sponsor is Marinepool.


More than 80 teams from at least 15 nations are expected to compete in the 2010 Marinepool Melges 24 World Championship, to be hosted by the Kalev Yacht Club from 5 to 12 August at its base in the Pirita Olympic Harbour, which was purpose built for the 1980 Olympics and offers outstanding facilities.  Sailing will take place on the Bay of Tallinn where the varied conditions are likely to make this one of the most challenging Melges 24 World Championships to date.

The Melges24 Class is an ideal partner for Marinepool. It is one of the most competitive classes in the world, great fun to watch and sail, tough on the athletes and the equipment and a class where the level of competition is so high that meticulous preparation and top gear can make all the difference. No wonder that many teams in the class are using Marinepool sailing gear" says Christoph Stadler, Communication Manager, Marinepool


Teams keen to train on the World Championship race area are invited to take part in the Estonian Open Melges 24 Championship, which will also be hosted by the Kalev Yacht Club from 30 July to 1 August.  Racing will be run by Worlds PRO Lars Nyqvist, on the championship race area in the Bay of Tallinn making it the perfect warm up opportunity.
