Pewaukee Yacht Club Host Melges 17 Clinic

1 August 2009

The Pewaukee Yacht Club hosted an entry level clinic for the Melges 17, in order to get people excited about the boat. The clinic started with an on land demonstration for the spinnaker hoists and take downs. In attendance were about twenty people, many youths and some couples looking for the next cool boat to campaign. Once the on land demo was done everyone hit the water to get on a Melges 17. PYC ordered up a perfect night for the clinic, sunny and wind 8-10 MPH. Due to the amount of people, each person had a half hour time limit sailing. With on the water rotations, changing skippers and crews went smoothly. 

A great night of promotion for the Melges 17, thanks to Chris Lieber and the Pewaukee Yacht Club fleet for offering up their time and boats in order to get people excited about the Melges 17.
