BACK TO BACK WINS FOR PACIFIC YANKEE
Melges 20 World Champ Added To #NSVictoryList  
 
It came down to the final race on the last day of Melges 20 Worlds for Drew Freides and his team of Morgan Reeser, and Charlie Smythe on Pacific Yankee to secure their title for the second consecutive year. Pacific Yankee, second place Brontolo Racing, and 2018 Corinthian World Champion Alex Team all used the North 3Di mainsail, which proved fast throughout the week in Cagliari, Italy.

Congratulations to Drew and his team on a hard fought regatta; a reminder that teamwork, persistence, and fast sails are the key to winning results.
