Ancasta Race Boats is delighted to bring the IC37 by Melges Performance Sailboats to the UK market.

Since the New York Yacht Club (NYYC) commissioned this new class, it has sparked interest from amateur teams the world over. Now that the first 20 boats have been built and delivered to the NYYC, the Melges IC37 Class is hoping to attract international teams that can also reap the rewards of this stand-out design.

The Class

The Melges IC37 Class has been developed to redefine the joy of racing for Corinthian owners and crews. The class and the boat were synergistically designed with the goal of a level playing field where a successful performance is based on skill and teamwork rather than a leg up in financial resources or expertise in tuning. It is the "Joy of Racing Re-imagined."

Working from the NYYC's concept and the potent Mark Mills design, the Melges IC37 Class is looking to build on this foundation by bringing regattas to the European, and specifically the UK, stage.

Racing

Building on the success that we have seen on the International stage, with the NYYC Invitational Events that have been running for well over a decade, we know the strict one-design format works.

Our ultimate goal is to replicate this ultra-tight, one-design racing in the UK, however the joy of the IC37 is that the boat has a second calling under IRC or ORC making it ideal for the UK market. With the standard RORC events, in addition to the established invitational events, an owner has a plethora of racing options ahead of them. Ancasta Race Boats, Melges Performance Sailboats, and fellow IC37 owners will make the international IC37 community one of the most sought-after circuits on the sailing scene.

The excitement is growing. With FIBRE Mechanics building the boats to exacting standards in Lymington, UK, owners have the opportunity to see their boats come to life. Ancasta Race Boats now welcomes interested parties to come forward with an expression of interest.
