The Fleet is continuing to grow and get stronger with new boats joining the competition for 2018.

The 2018 MELGES 32 WORLD LEAGUE schedule will be the perfect mix of the fleets' favourite spots while exploring new venues:

FORIO D'ISCHIA - ISCHIA ISLAND, April 13-15 - MWL Event #1

A short boat ride from Naples, Ischia is the bay’s largest volcanic island. It's an intriguing concoction of sprawling spa towns, abundant gardens, buried necropolises and spectacular scenery of picturesque small towns that make it quintessentially Italian.

SCARLINO, June 1-3: MWL Event #2

In the Italian region of Tuscany, Scarlino, has ancient origins dating back to the Etruscans. With its lyrical landscapes, world-class art and a superb cuisine, the Tuscan experience is perfectly in symbiosis with the land. Explore wineries, go on a quest for the best bistecca alla fiorentina or enjoy the territory on the famous road bikes routes.

RIVA DEL GARDA, July 26 - 28: MWL Event #3

On Lake Garda’s northern shore, stunning and very popular, Riva, is encircled by towering rock faces and a looping landscaped lake front. Renowned for its regular winds, the Pelèr, the northerly morning wind, and the Ora, the wind from the South, which usually starts after the Pelèr drops down and provides perfect conditions for sailing most days of the year making Riva del Garda a not-to-be-missed location.

CAGLIARI, August 30 - Sept. 1: MWL Event #4

Cagliari is the most Italian of Sardinia’s cities. Vespas buzz up and down tree-fringed boulevards and locals hang out at the busy cafes that are tucked under arcades in the seafront Marina district. Cagliari wears its history on its sleeve and everywhere you go you come across traces of its rich past merging perfectly with the limpid blue waters that surround Sardinia.


As the most important event on the 2018 Melges 32 World League circuit, the first start will sound October 17th, setting in motion the act of crowning the Class’ tenth World Champion.

Helly Hansen is the official sponsor of the Melges World League.

Garmin is the official timekeeper of the Melges World League European Division.
