Sarasota Sailing Squadron
THE MELGES MC SCOW
Interested in fun? Come sail the MC Scow!
The Melges MC is one of the largest, most popular one-design fleets in North America. The scow design maximizes speed yet provides unmatched stability.
An original design by the Melges family in 1956, it is unique in the fact that you can sail single-handed or double-handed. Sailing solo is easy, taking a crew is fun!
Sarasota Bay is a perfect home for this hugely popular one-design. Easy to launch, easy to sail, easy to maintain, and affordable.
