2007 Melges 32 National Championship Now Showing on Kattack
15 July 2007
There are 16 boats participating in this fast growing, fast on the water, competitive fleet. With recent wins at the 2007 Acura Key West and 2007 Acura Miami Grand Prix, Claudio Recchi’s Melges 32, Let’s Roll, is the favorite heading into 2007 Melges 32 National Championship in Newport, RI this week. Claudio will have familiar competition because most of the boats were also competitors in the two big Florida winter events. Jeff Ecklund’s Star is the defending 2006 National Champion and his team will be working hard to end Claudio’s winning streak.
We have heard from the competitors that they are very excited that Kattack is there to enhance their national event. The 15 boats in the National Championships will be tracked with GPS units and the competitors can watch the race in the evening at the Sail Newport party tent.
Kattack is also providing race replay over the internet with the Kattack Race Player. The races will be posted on the internet each day, so that you can keep up with the competition. The first race of the regatta is available for no charge and to see the remaining races there is a subscription fee of $19.95.
