Westerly Marine has finished building the New York Yacht Club’s first IC37 by Melges. Last week the boat departed Southern California heading to Rhode Island for sea trials.

The strong collaboration of talent involved in this project will sail the boat for the first time off Newport, R.I., later this month. The one design racer has been selected for the upcoming Canada’s Cup defense in Toronto in 2020, 2022 and 2024. Click here for December’s announcement of the competition.
