Competitor information from the New York Yacht Club

2019 Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup

Bulletin #5 - May 23, 2019

IC37 Sailing Resources
The Melges IC37 Class Association webpage has all the information you need to familiarize yourself with the IC37. In addition to the boat specs and tuning guide, North Sails consultant and former AC sailor, Cam Appleton, has written a comprehensive sailing manual.  IC37 Sailing Manual 2.0 includes a plethora of key tips, including ultimate crew configuration and placement on the boat, race preparation, starting, critical tactical maneuvers and the IC37 polars.  Each team should take the time to glean every nugget of information provided and, in so doing, prep your team for success at the 2019 Rolex NYYC Invitational Cup!
