CREW LISTS ONLINE AT YACHTSCORING
It is very important to the Class, as well as the Charleston OA that every team enter and complete their crew lists online at Yachtscoring: https://www.yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=4494. Log into the Owner’s Corner and take care of this ASAP.
These crew lists help the U.S. Melges 24 Class, confirm and officially qualify teams for Corinthian competition. It is also very helpful to the press, as they can target our fleet for features in their news releases.
So, please take a moment and enter your crew list sooner rather than later — especially those of you who would like to be included in the Corinthian Division.
