BIG, REALLY BIG
Over 100 J/24 teams are breathlessly anticipating the start of the first
“open” J/24 Worlds in decades. With racing on September 17-21, a strong
American contingent will be doing battle against a cadre of past World,
European, North American, South American, Canadian, Bermudian, Brazilian,
Argentinean, Chilean, Peruvian and Japanese Champions.
Hosted by the Rochester Yacht Club in Rochester, NY, located on the south
shore of Lake Ontario, the teams are anticipating how best to get out of
the starting blocks with over 100 boats on one huge line with multiple line
boats calling the start and keeping the aggressive teams in check.
For those interested in the 2012 Worlds in Rochester in September I have posted a report on it on a separate Worlds page – click here
We are fast approaching the J24 Gosford Classic Regatta which is being held on 29 & 30 September 2012 at Gosford Sailing Club. Always a fantastic weekend, we encourage you to come along and join the fun.
It’s a long weekend so we encourage you to book accomodation early and Terrigal is always a great spot to stay, with the J24 Association shouting Happy Hour at the Crowe Plaza hotel on Saturday evening too.
