Harry Melges IV and the I-1 team win the 2018 ILYA E Scow Invitational. Strothman, V. Porter and Cox right on his tail giving LGYC Members 1st-4th in the event.
November 2-4 Harry Melges IV and Finn Rowe traveled to Miami on an invitation to compete in this Red Bull youth event. Only 16 teams of the top youth sailors in the US were invited to race in this highly competitive event for ages 16-20. The boats sailed were foiling catamarans called Flying Phantoms which can reach speeds up to 35 knots. It was a bracketed race platform which eliminated teams throughout the event culminating in a final group of only the top four boats. One final race of the best of the best determined the end result & Melges Rowe Team championed through to the final round and took third overall for the event!
