Ullman Sails customer Andy Rasdal and crew on Melges 24 “Valkyrie” claimed first overall as a Corinthian team last week at San Diego YC’s Melges Race Week! The local team mastered the racecourse and 13-boat fleet sailing in San Diego’s South Bay. And not only did Andy and his team place first overall, they had a secret weapon onboard – they were the only team competing with an Ullman main and jib! Powered by our main and jib, the “Valkyrie” team beat out professional and Corinthian teams with no worse than a 4th place finish over three days and eight races. In the first annual Melges Race Week, the fleet raced in breezes between 8-20 knots. Andy credits his win with great boat speed throughout the wind range. The team competed with Ullman Melges 24 with the Ullman Dacron “Shark” mainsail an Ullman jib.
