The International J/24 Class Association (IJCA) will hold its 2022 World Championship at Corpus Christi Yacht Club in Corpus Christi, Texas USA on July 14-22, 2022.

Brad Stokes, Regatta Chair, said, “Corpus Christi Yacht Club, host of the 1988, 1982 and 1979 J/24 North American Championships and recipient of the US Sailing St. Petersburg trophy for excellence in race management is pleased to welcome J/24 sailors to experience our favorable wind conditions and our southern hospitality.” IJCA Chair Will Welles added, “We are very pleased that Corpus Christi will host the 2022 Worlds, and we are hoping that many teams will come and compete in this great sailing venue!”


2021 J/24 World Championship Cancellation

March 29, 2021

The International J/24 Class Association (IJCA) and the Parkstone Yacht Club in Poole United Kingdom today announced that the 2021 J/24 World Championship scheduled for September 26-October 1, 2021 has been cancelled. The Organizing Committee (OC) had hoped that it would be possible to hold the much-anticipated regatta this autumn. However, despite the encouraging progress that is being made toward the UK’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that even if the UK lockdown continues in line with the UK Government’s current timetable, there will continue to be uncertainty regarding International travel for some time. Regatta Chairman Bryan Drake commented, “We know that this will cause a great deal of disappointment, not only to the OC who have worked hard for over four years to deliver a superb event but also to the J/24 community across the world. Both the OC and the J/24 crews were hoping that the pandemic would be behind us all by now so that we could have looked forward to a fabulous fortnight later this year, but there is too much uncertainty to make this viable.” The IJCA and its members worldwide look forward to resuming World Championship sailing in 2022.

March 15, 2021

 

The International J/24 Class Association (IJCA), in cooperation with the Italian Federation of Sailing (F.I.V.) who delegates Yacht Club Adriaco, Triestina della Vela and Yacht Club Porto San Rocco have agreed to cancel the 2021 J/24 European Championship. The Italian J/24 Class will now host the J/24 European Championship in Trieste, Italy in 2024. “Most of the European Class representatives do not think that crew will be safe and able to travel across Europe to participate in the event. We agreed that, all considered, it is not safe or wise to go on with the organization in 2021. Trieste 2024 is the best option,” said Roberto Sponza, the 2021 J/24 European Championship Event Chairperson. The IJCA and its members worldwide look forward to resuming the European Championship schedule in 2022 and beyond:
• 2022 J/24 European Championship, August 29-September 3, 2022 at Howth Yacht Club, Howth, Ireland
• 2023 J/24 European Championship, August 20-27, 2023 at Balatonfüred Yacht Club, Lake Balaton Hungary
• 2024 J/24 European Championship in Trieste Italy
