The Melges X Boat makes learning to sail fun, easy and addictive. For youth sailors, it is a rewarding experience that ultimately fosters a deep passion for the sport. Boasting a regular showing of over 100 boats at the X Inland Championship, it is one of the most active youth sailing fleets in North America. The Melges X Boat Experience not just about the racing. It's about the community – Making lifelong friends through sailing, volleyball, and just plain fun. The Melges X Boat is the perfect, uncomplicated trainer designed specifically to be safe for novice sailors yet competitive & fun for aspiring junior racers. Fast and super smooth, it enables concise development and instruction of necessary boat handling skills, maneuvers and racing tactics. The perfect boat to establish a lifetime love of sailing!

The 2019 season is here! The X Boat fleet has lots of great sailing and racing opportunities for your child to grow their sailing skills and their friendship circles. Start the X Boat season with two intergenerational events on the weekend of May 18-19. Families with E Scow sailors head to Lake Geneva and families with C Scow and MC Scow sailors head to Lac LaBelle. Both are dual-events for both parents and children. On Lake Geneva, kids kick off their season with the learning-focused Geneva Lake Sailing School X Boat Clinic , while parents race at the E Scow Geneva Spring Regatta , both at the same location. The LaBelle Tune-Up is Wisconsin lake country's annual tune-up regatta bringing together the X Boat, C Scow, and MC Scow fleets for a fun two-day regatta! Two fun events to start your 2019 season off on a high note!

There are many opportunities, both local and regional, to continue X Boat sailing and racing all summer long. Sail in your local fleet regularly. Travel to events to meet new friends and gain racing experience against larger fleets.

The highlight of the X Boat season each year is the X Inland Championship. This year, the Minnetonka Yacht Club will host the championship July 24-27. Save the date! Imagine 200 kids playing on Lighthouse Island — These are the memories and the friendships that will last them a lifetime! Watch the video from last year's X Inland .
