Will Welles’ Bruschetta Stays Strong at J/24 North American Championship

April 4, 2019

Another gorgeous day in Valle de Bravo, another day atop the leaderboard for Will Welles’ Bruschetta at the J/24 North American Championship. With boat owner Aroldo de Rienzo aboard as well as Rich Bowen, John McCabe and PJ Schaffer, Bruschetta lodged scores of 1,5,1 on Wednesday. Now able to discard the fifth in race five, Welles has a net score of 7 points in six races of the planned 10-race series. Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet benefited from a solid day to jump into second place overall, after recording a 3,1,3 for 14 net points. Kenneth Porter’s S moved into third place with 19 points. Twenty-seven J/24s are competing at Club Nautico Valle de Bravo in Mexico through Friday. Following a brief postponement while the breeze came in, racing got underway in winds of 8-10 knots, which increased to 10-14 with puffs in the high teens. Welles earned his third bullet of the Championship in Wednesday’s initial contest, trailed by Porter and Parker. Then it was Parker’s turn for line honors, his best finish of the series, while Laura and Ramon Benitez’s De colores followed. Leading the fleet back to the docks were Welles, Porter and Parker.

How Do You Spell Perfection in Spanish? Valle de Bravo

April 3, 2019

Current J/24 World Champion Will Welles, racing Bruschetta, of the USA has taken the early advantage with 5 points, following scores of 1,1,3. The next positions are locked in a tie at 10 points: Javier Velasquez’s Trinquete (7,2,1 on the day) and Mark Laura’s Baba Louie (2,3,5). Under cloudless skies on the picturesque lake in the mountains of Mexico, Welles opened the Championship with his first of consecutive bullets. Trailing him in race one were Laura and Kenneth Porter’s S. And in race two were Velasquez and Laura. Velasquez earned the final victory of the day, as Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet and Welles comprised the top three. Racing continues through Friday.

CAMBURY Crowned J/24 Campeon del Oeste

The Campeonato del Oeste was recently sailed on the Andean mountains lake off Potrerillos in Argentina. The dozen-boat fleet was treated to a wide variety of conditions over the three-day Championship. After 11 races, it was clear the regatta was a battle between CAMBURY, RINA and MORRUCHO. The final standings were not determined until the last race, with the team of CAMBURY (Marcelo Freytes, Ricky Homps, Torkel Borgstrom and Ezequiel Despontin) winning by just one point. Racing was so close amongst the trio of boats that second place was determined by a tie-breaker. Winning that count-back was Buenos Aires sailor Nicolas Cubria’s RINA over Sebastian Halpern’s MORRUCHO. Rounding out the top five were US in fourth and SEAWOLF in fifth. Nico Cubria commented on the sailing, “On Saturday, we sailed for the Martin Pelado Costa Cup, a tribute to past J/24 sailor Sr. Martín. The best boat of the day was MORRUCHO skippered by Sebastian Halpern. In the afternoon, there was an emotional presentation of prizes that counted on the presence of the wife and children of Martin who, together with Torkel Borgstrom, dedicated warm words and anecdotes remembering Martin. On Sunday, the wind breeze stayed strong in the 12 to 20 kts range, enabling the PRO to run four more races. Needless to say, there is great camaraderie amongst the sailors!” For more Argentine J/24 Class information, visit

Rossi Milev’s Clear Air Captures J/24 Midwinter Championship

March 5, 2019

2017 J/24 World Champion Rossi Milev, on Clear Air, hoisted another Class perpetual trophy Sunday, taking the 2019 J/24 Midwinter Championship at Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, FL. With crew Dan Borrer, Gayle Gray, Vince Somoza (boat owner) and Mark Goodyear, the Ontario Canada-based helmsman led the team to net scores of 2,1,3,7,5,1,4 for 23 points. Carter White’s YouRegatta paced solid scores all weekend, earning him the silver position with 26 points. John Mollicone’s Helly Hansen came on strong in the latter races to clinch the bronze spot with 28 points. Twenty-nine teams completed eight races from March 1-3. This event was Milev’s first since the 2017 Worlds. “It felt great to be back,” said Milev. “We didn’t have the gears since we haven’t sailed for a while, but every day, we got a little better.” Although Gray and Goodyear were part of the World Championship crew, Borrer and Somoza were newcomers to Clear Air, yet “clicked from the get-go.” The blue skies, solid seabreeze and temperatures hovering around 80 degrees were a welcome relief to the sub-zero conditions in Canada. About Davis Island, Milev summarized, “It’s one of my favorite places in North America to sail. It’s the friendliest yacht club by far. The breeze this weekend was unbelievable. I’ve sailed here a lot of times, and this is the steadiest I’ve ever seen it. On Saturday, we had 15 minutes on one tack, and we never got a shift.”

Top five:

  1. Clear Air, Rossi Milev, CAN 2 -1 -[14] -3 -7 -5 -1 -4 ; 23
  2. YouRegatta, Carter White, USA 1 -[12] -6 -4 -3 -6 -3 -3 ; 26
  3. Helly Hansen, John Mollicone, USA [24] -8 -4 -6 -2 -2 -5 -1 ; 28

  5. Angel of Harlem, Robby Brown, USA 7 -2 -3 -2 -11 -7 -8 -[30] ; 40
    Sunday’s race winners were Milev and Mollicone. Photos are posted on the USA J/24 Class Facebook page, and complete results are available at

Casales Leads Sardinia J/24 Winter Series

February 13, 2019

In the waters of the Golfo di Poetto, the Windsurfing Club Cagliari hosted the first event of their winter series on the waters off Sardinia for a fleet of 10 boats. Prior to the start of the series, mistral-like conditions buffeted the island with steady 30 knots of winds, gusting to 45 knots. However, by the weekend, the Race Committee of the WCC, chaired by Betty Lai, managed to run three races on Saturday. The starts were close, tightly packed, and the first windward legs were, in particular, very shifty, making it hard for boats to remain consistent race to race. The one exception appeared to be Andrea Casale, an Italian J/24 Champion and also two-time J/24 World Champion. His team managed to round all marks in the lead and start out the series in first place. Behind Casales’ team on ARIA DELLA LNI OLBIA in the first race was Aurelio Bini’s VIGNE SURRAU in second and Giuseppe Taras’ DOLPHINS in third. In the second race, DOLPHINS took second followed by Sergio Contu’s NEW MOLLICA in third place. In the last and final race of the weekend, NEW MOLLICA took second in a close duel with Casales, with VIGNE SURRAU taking third. At the end of the racing, the J/24 crews met to talk with the Genovese champion Casales who gave advice on the boat’s handling and on the tactical choices to be competitive in conditions like those on the weekend. The overall standings (after the first five races) have ITA 443 ARIA DELLA LNI OLBIA leading with a 6-2-1-1-1 record, followed by ITA 405 VIGNE SURRAU from the Circolo Nautico Arzachena with a 3-1-2-9-3 tally in second, then Giuseppe Taras’ ITA 401 DOLPHINS sitting in third with a 2-6-3-2-5 scoreline.

J/24s Enjoy Gorgeous Grenada Sailing Week

Friday 1st February saw the final race day for the seventh edition of the Island Water World Grenada Sailing Week 2019. Once again, the fleet saw spectacular conditions out on the water. The balmy early morning calm fortunately gave way to a good breeze as the trade winds kicked in. Competitors made their way to the start line with everything still to race for. Fredrick Sweeny’s Attitude, Robbie Yearwood’s Die Hard and Stephen Bushe’s Hawkeye led the way in the J/24 fleet. But it was Attitude with 10 wins out of 18 that took the final honours. The final night’s prize-giving and the Mount Gay Wrap Up party were held at the upper restaurant of Secret Harbour Marina overlooking Mount Hartman Bay. Nearly US$1,000 was raised during the event to support the first GSA Youth Sailing Team who competed in the J/24 Class and had an excellent time out on the water. The Organising Committee wants to thank everyone involved and hopes to see everyone again next year. Overall results for the J/24:

1st – Attitude – Fredrick Sweeney – St Lucia
2nd – Die Hard – Robbie Yearwood – Grenada
3rd – Hawkeye – Stephen Bushe – Trinidad

LA SUPERBA Leads Italian J/24 Winter Series / AMERICAN PASSAGE Leading the Lozzi Trophy

February 3, 2019

With two beautiful days of sailing with moderate breezes, the Roman J/24 fleet enjoyed great racing on the Gulf of Anzio, southwest of Rome. The fleet was sailing for the Lozzi Trophy on Saturday and the Anzio & Nettuno Winter Series on Sunday. Saturday’s sailing was marked by partly cloudy skies, plenty of sun, and very shifty offshore winds for the 10-boat fleet. Three races were completed by the end of the day. Victories went to ITA 458 ENJOY 2 sailed by Luca Silvestri, ITA 487 AMERICAN PASSAGE skippered by Paolo Rinaldi and to ITA 36 FLETCHER LYN sailed by Stefano Renoglio. As a result of Saturday’s racing, leading after six races in the overall Lozzi Trophy standings was AMERICAN PASSAGE with a 4-3-1-2-1-2 scoreline for 9 points. The balance of the top three overall included ENJOY 2 in second with scores of 3-2-2-1-2-4 for 10 points and, in third place, is FLETCHER LYNN with a tally of 2-5-3-5-5-1 for 16 points. The second day of sailing produced three more races for the 21 J/24s on the Gulf of Anzio. The day started off spectacularly, but black clouds loomed on the horizon as the fleet, again, sailed in easterly winds of 10-13 knots. Winners on Sunday were determined by who completed the podium behind the domination of ITA 416 LA SUPERBA who posted three straight bullets. Skipper Ignazio Bonanno from the Italian Navy and his crew of Vincenzo Vano, Francesco Picaro, Alfredo Branciforte and Francesco Linares lengthened their already insurmountable lead in the overall Winter Series (now counting nine bullets). In the first race behind LA SUPERBA was ITA 428 PELLE ROSSA sailed by Gianni Riccobono and ITA 447 PELLE NERA helmed by Paolo Cecamore. In the following race, it was AMERICAN PASSAGE and ENJOY 2 in second and third. After ten races in the overall Winter Series, LA SUPERBA continues to lead by a substantial margin. However, the balance of the podium is currently tied between two boats at 43 points each: ITA 385 J ARMED JUDGE (Riccardo Aleandri, Antimo Bruno, Fulvio Marchionni, Fabio Di Bartolomeo, Vito Esposito and Fabiana Onori) and Luca Silvestri’s ENJOY 2. Sunday ended with the traditional pasta and wine party on the terrace of the Circolo Della Vela. For more Italian J/24 Class information, visit

By The Lee with Skipper Brendan Lee is 2019 Australian J/24 Champion

January 14, 2019

Thanks to Brendan Lee for his story: After some confusion as to whether the 2019 J/24 National Championship would be held in Adelaide or not, the Cruising Yacht Club of South Australia got behind the J/24 Class and hosted the championship from the 3rd to the 6th of January 2019. Whilst down on entrants from previous years, the competition was just as fierce. A special thank you to the 10 crews who travelled from NSW and Victoria. Twelve races were scheduled over four days of racing with the first discard coming in after race 8 and the second after race 10.

Day 1 and with a forecast top of 41 degrees, race management decided to put up the AP and keep the fleet in the shade until the sea breeze kicked in. Race 1 eventually got underway in about 6 knots of wind with the official sea breeze announcing itself part way up the third leg with a massive starboard lift. Those who decided to go to the left gate and out to sea prospered. Those that did not paid a hefty price, except for Team El Fideldo who charged out to sea and picked up the generous lift to record a bullet in Race 1.
If anyone was watching from the shore, they would have been curious as to why there was often someone hanging over the back of the boats. This was to rid seagrass from the rudder. Unfortunately, arms were not long enough so it was just a case of putting up with it and assuming that everyone was “in the same boat” so to speak. As for the keel, well there was little that could be done other than sailing backwards, which would not only have been costly but likely pointless as it would have just been a matter of time until more accumulated. I understand Wildfire did in fact execute the backwards move mid-race. The following morning a number of brooms showed up on various boats with Vice Versa and By The Lee targeting the same Bunnings at the same time.
With the first race out of the way and hopefully an early discard, the hammer went down, and By The Lee picked up Race 2.
Race 3 and it was Stamped Urgent recording the win, successfully defending off By The Lee, which at times were just 4cm behind and doing everything possible to get by. A shoulda-coulda moment for sure. J/24 One Design sailing at its best!
By the end of Day 1 and with 3 races sailed, it was Stamped Urgent showing the way on 7 points with Tinto and Two Dogs on 10 points and By The Lee lying fourth on 11 points.
Following the day’s racing, it was the usual stories and banter about what coulda- and shoulda-been enjoyed over a BBQ put on by the South Australian Association. Thank you to Jim and Robyn for bringing it all together and Andrew and others for doing the cooking in almost 40-degree heat.
Sponsors Dog Ridge Wines joined the party by giving away 60 bottles of Rosé to be handed out to the top three places on One Design and PHS for each race and a new genoa from Peter Stevens, representing a new Chinese Manufacturer Loong Sails for the median placed PHS boat overall.
Day 2 and the forecast Strong Wind Warning was spot on. St. Vincent’s Gulf was recording in excess of 25 knots. With no wind abatement in sight, race management called off the day and after just three races, the fleet was rewarded with a lay day. Some chose to go to the wineries and others decided to race go-carts to blow off the adrenaline built up from day 1. All in all, it was in fact a great J/24 community day with many teams coming together and having fun.
Day 3 and the wind had moderated to 12-15 knots. Race 4 was set in at 0.6nm, however I think the race officer underestimated the speed of a J/24 and subsequently set Race 5 at 0.8nm and Race 6 & 7 at 1.0nm. With a big incoming tide, the upwind legs on the last race was seriously hard work.
Race 4 and 6 were taken out by By The Lee, with Stamped Urgent picking up Race 5 and their second win.
Onto race 7 and the final race of the day, and it was a new boat at the top—Wildfire—which I think started a few minutes ahead of the rest as this is how it ended up. I think Ron and the team were in the bar by the time the second boat crossed the line. Well done!
So at the end of Day 3, it was By The Lee and Tinto at the top on 20 points, with Stamped Urgent just 6 points behind.
With Day 2 being blown out, race management decided to get things underway an hour early on the final day, so the stage was set for a 10am start and up to four races scheduled. The Championship was far from decided.
Day 4, and By The Lee knew what they needed to do….stay ahead of Tinto in every race. Race 8 got underway in about 8 knots of breeze, and it was By The Lee rounding the top mark in first place, with Tinto a few places back. However, in true Steve Wright style, the competition was picked apart, and in the end, it was By The Lee, followed by Tinto in second. With eight races sailed, the first discard came into play, and the finishing positions were starting to take shape with Stamped Urgent, Wildfire and Two Dogs all eyeing out a podium finish.
Race 9, and it was By The Lee first at the top mark, however this was short lived after a massive spinnaker wrap which took a full three minutes to come free allowed Tinto and Vice Versa to sail through. With By The Lee going toe to toe with Tinto for the entire regatta, any placings between the two was huge, so in this case it was +2 to Tinto.
Race 10, and By The Lee had Tinto sucking dirty air off the line, however a short tack out to sea and back over to starboard saw Tinto cross the fleet, which left By The Lee wondering what the hell just happened. Tinto recorded their second win, and once again the gap narrowed by a further 2 points with By The Lee coming home in third.
With 10 races sailed and the second discard now in place, it was a showdown in the last race with just a two-point spread between first and second place. A good upwind leg on Race 11 saw By The Lee round the top mark first with Wildfire hot on their heals. Tinto was a bit further back, but again this was short-lived. Another less than ideal spinnaker launch saw Wildfire sail over By The Lee.
With a close eye on Tinto, defensive mode kicked in. Wildfire extended their lead, and the fleet closed in on By The Lee with both Tinto and Stamped Urgent getting past. Provided the gap was no more than three placings and a result of fifth or better, By The Lee was okay.
The next thing I saw was Tinto doing a gybe upwind, which I later understood was as a result of contact being made with Stamped Urgent. With a generous port lift, By The Lee crossed ahead of Stamped Urgent, and as a result of the penalty, Tinto was back in sixth.
At the end, it was Wildfire recording their second win, By The Lee coming home in second place and securing the Championship, with Stamped Urgent crossing the line in third which also resulted in being awarded third overall by one point over Wildfire. A very consistent effort across the 11 races saw Tinto drop their sixth place, finishing second just three points behind By The Lee.
And so it was onto to the prize-giving with a traditional dinner overlooking the beautiful North Haven Marina. The last few bottles of Rosé were handed out, and the winner of the genoa was awarded to Jack Fullerton on Two Dogs, who sailed an excellent regatta finishing fifth overall, just five points off the podium.
After seven attempts, it was Brendan Lee, Rory Groves, Dan Cave, Peter Lee and Keren Reynolds on By The Lee picking up their first National Championship.
In usual J/24 style, the night went on with plenty of laughter and cheer. The 2019 Championships was a great success. A special thank you to the CYCSA, J/24 SA organisers and volunteers and to the sponsors Dog Ridge Wines and Loong Sails for their support.
We look forward to seeing you at the Victorian Championship regatta in Victoria being held on the 30th and 31st of March 2019. (Photo is By The Lee, skipper Brendan Lee and crew. 2019 Australian J/24 Champions.)

LA SUPERBA Crowned Winter J/24 Italian Champion

The competitive J/24 Fleet of Rome had a regatta full of fun and lots of racing (eight races in total). The fleet of 22 boats was sailing in their 44th Winter Championship of Anzio-Nettuno, racing for the Lozzi Trophy. Winning the regatta was the Italian Navy crew on LA SUPERBA, skippered by Ignazio Bonanno with crew of Vincenzo Vano, Francesco Picaro, Alfredo Branciforte and Francesco Linares; they dominated the regatta with six firsts and two fourths. “On Saturday, a mistral of 22 knots and a flat sea provided the sailors fabulous conditions for racing,” explained Federico Miccio. “The crews did not seem at all intimidated by the strong wind and, indeed, had fun sailing three demanding races on the first day. On the following day, the scenario was decidedly different. The light wind between 4 and 5 knots oscillated between the Levante and the Sirocco, and then stabilized at Ostro. This allowed the Race Committee to start the racing. A large part of the fleet chose the left-hand side, while the wind was shifting to the right, and very spotty along the race course. It was a challenging day for us and the rest of the fleet.” After eight races and two discards, is was Bonanno’s LA SUPERBA crew who eclipsed the fleet. Taking second place was the young crew on J-GIUDITTA, skippered by Riccardo Aleandri, Antimo Bruno on tactics, Fulvio Marchionni on bow, and Fabio Di Bartolomeo, Vito Esposito and Fabiana Onori in the middle. Closing out the podium was Paolo Cecamore’s PELLE NERA. Rounding out the top five were Michele Potenza’s ARPION (also top woman helm) in fourth position and Massimo Mariotti’s AVOLTORE in fifth place. For more Italian J/24 Class information, visit

Duel at Väter¬chen Frost Regatta

December 5, 2018

The Hamburger Segel-Club in Germany hosted the Väter¬chen Frost Regatta for a fleet including 19 J/24s on the Alster Lake in front of the Hamburg city waterfront. Fabian Damm’s GER 5316 and Frank Schoenfeldt’s GER 5412 were experiencing a roller-coaster ride all the way to the final finish. Winning that battle was Damm’s crew on GER 5316 (Jannik Duehren, Moritz Boeoek, Jonas Lyssewski, Jan Eike Sihdiz) with a 1-6-1-8-1 for 9 points net. Wishing for a better outcome in their last race was Schoenfeldt’s crew on GER 5412. In the end, their tally was the most consistent on the leaderboard, with a 5-1-2-3-4 for 10 points net. Taking the bronze was Stefan Karsunke’s team of Lina Nagel, Lars Hager, Lars Gibbe and David Thompson. For more event information, visit

Fall Italian J/24 Class Report

The Italian J/24 Class continues to see good participation in many of its fall/winter series Championships across the country. Here is a report from Lecco (Lake Como): ITA 499 Kong Griffin II, skippered by Marco Stefanoni, ended up winning the Interlaghi- Trofeo Canottieri Lecco- with a score of 1-3-1-2. The regatta is a classic for the end of the season in the lakes district north of Milano (the first edition of the regatta started back in 1980 for the J/24 Class). Taking second place was ITA 476 DEJA VU, skippered by Ruggero Spreafico, posting a 4-4-2-1. Rounding out the podium was ITA 498 NOTIFYME-PILGRIM, sailed by the fleet champion Lario Mauro Benfatto. Five races were held over the weekend. On the first day, rain and bad weather did not stop the crews from racing. Faced with a strong wind from the South that, at times, reached 16 to 20 knots, the fleet completed four races in about six hours on the water. On Sunday, it was a completely different story. The first race was held in very strong gusty winds from the North that were already hitting 20-plus knots, with big rain showers rolling across the race course. However, as the winds built in squalls up to 25-plus knots, the Race Committee was forced to cancel the second race for safety reasons. In addition to the winner of the regatta, a special award was handed out—the Gino Cicardi Trophy (reserved for the oldest sailor). This year, it was awarded to Sergio Agostoni (born in 1938), helmsman and owner of the J/24 ITA 469 Bruschetta Guastafeste, fourth in the overall classification J/24.

Battle at Chilean J/24 Nationals

The Chilean J/24 National Championship was sailed on the waters of the Bay of Concepción, based on Quiriquina Island, for a dozen J/24 teams. A select group of famous South American J/24 sailors were invited to participate as crew aboard various boats, including Brazilian Mauricio Santa Cruz, multiple World and South American Champion. In addition, Argentine Matias Pereira, multiple South American Champion, Pan-American Champion and multiple Argentine Champion was crew. And Nicolas Cubria, former Argentine Champion, also sailed as crew. Each one of them sailed as crew with a top Chilean helmsman. Positioning themselves comfortably in first place on the first day of racing was the Chilean Del Castillo and his crew (all local) who won three of the four races. In the first two days, the winds were mild. But, as the racing progressed and the wind increased, it was a trade-off between the top end genoa or the jib. At the end of the last race, the teams of E. Fernandez and N. Cubría with the crew of Carlos del Solar and Mauricio Santa Cruz were tied on points. As in the last regatta, Del Castillo won and qualified as Chilean 2018 J/24 Champion. Second was Carlos del Solar with Mauricio Santa Cruz. Third was Patricio Rodriguez’s team with Matias Pereira. Fourth was Raúl del Castillo. For more Chilean J/24 Class information, visit
