Thursday evening’s opening ceremony included a very exclusive and rare presentation by sailing legend Buddy Melges. Revered as the greatest American sailor of all time, very few yachtsmen can claim a resume like Melges’. From his many World Championship victories, to his impeccable successes as a decorated Olympic Sailor and ultimately an America’s Cup Champion, Melges truly entertained the 15-strong A Scow fleet with his expertise and insights about ‘sailing smart.’
