The 2023 Melges 15 Winter Series Event Two attracted boat owners from around the country with their crews and families to Jensen Beach, FL.

There were three competitive races in 6-10 knots featuring three different winners including new owners Michael Max and Matt Burridge (St. Louis, MO). Vakaros hosted a debrief featuring tracks and analytics from the races and complimentary food and chilled beverages from Melges. 

On Sunday, the Race Committee tried to fire off a race in challenging conditions but ultimately abandoned for the day. The beach launch made it easy for boats to pack up before rallying for awards.

A single point separated the top two teams with Emily Haig and Nika Silkin (Beach Haven, NJ) taking the overall win followed by Toby and Peter Sullivan (Dellwood, MN).

Awards were presented to the top sailors in their age division as well as the top husband/wife, youth and top female.

The 2023 Winter Series concludes with the Midwinter Championship on March 24-26 in Jensen Beach.
