2013 MEGABYTE MIDWINTER CHAMPIONSHIP
The Megabyte class is holding its midwinter championship February 15-17th 2013 as part of the St. Petersburg NOOD Regatta. This will be the 10th anniversary of the megabyte midwinter event. Competitors from as far as the Northeast and Canada are expected to travel to Florida in search of warm waters and great racing.
The Megabtye is a fast, yet stable boat that can be sailed with two crew or raced singlehanded. The Megabyte’s lightweight, tapered, carbon fiber mast and battened Mylar sail provide plenty of power when needed, and are easy to depower with well led controls. Sailors well over 200 lbs can singlehand the Megabyte competitively and comfortably thanks to its powerful sail plan, deep cockpit, and high boom.
