Chad Coberly is victorious at the 2013 Macatawa Bay Melges 17 Spring Invitational

6 May 2013

The 2013 Macatawa Bay Melges 17 Spring Invitational was a weekend enjoyed by all on and off the water. Macatawa Bay Yacht Club hosted nine extremely close and highly competitive races with only one point separating the winner and the runner up.

Congratulations to Chad Coberly, 2012 Brownwater Regatta champion, sailing USA 3 who took the win with four bullets for the weekend! Coberly was highly contested the entire regatta. Steve Sission on Elevation Racing finished one back for the series despite winning five races this weekend. Third place finisher Casey Call had a great weekend on the water sailing USA 71. Call finished up day two with a 3-2-3 punch that solidified his spot on the podium separating himself from the rest of the fleet. 

The fleet had a fantastic time with family and friends especially at the beach party at the Brand's and are looking forward to the Melges 17 Muskegon Opener happening next weekend, May 18-19, 2013!
