2017 X INLAND CHAMPIONSHIP DECIDED IN EPIC LAST RACE

Congratulations Nathan & Graham Hetzler!

With an unbelievable tie after seven races, the stage was set for an epic showdown between D-30, I-25 and I-11. In the who-beats-who final race, Nathan Hetzler, Chapman Petersen, and Kyle Navin finished first, second, and third. Delavan Lake’s Nathan & Graham Hetzler are your newest X Boat Champions!

Congratulations to the Simon siblings who earned the title in the junior fleet of 67 X Boats! Pewaukee’s Meta & Fritz Simon sailed an incredibly consistent event averaging less than four points.

Every X Boat has a place in this lifelong Inland community. In the words of Dr. Tom Hodgson:

“Treasure this moment kids. It is a very special moment in your life. You are making friends here that will be your friends for life.”

The Melges X Boat is the path to the Inland. A community of fast, FUN, family sailing. After kids age out of X Boats, they move into the Melges MC, C, E, and A. This is scow country! Home to Olympians, Rolex Yachtsmen, and Inland Legends.
