Penultimate Day at J/24 European Championship

September 3, 2022

The Irish teams benefited from home field advantage for races 8 and 9 of the J/24 European Championship hosted by Howth Yacht Club. In winds between 8-10 knots, the top three in both of Friday’s matches were comprised solely of boats from Ireland. However, it wasn’t enough to knock the Greek team of JMania helmed by Stelios Sotitiou from first place (now with 42 net points). By way of two bullets on the day, Cillian Dickson’s Headcase (IRL) leapt into the runner-up spot with 48 net points. Stefan Karsunke’s Schwere Jungs (GER) sits another two points back in third. Dickson’s Headcase leads the 21-boat Corinthian Division, trailed by David Hale’s Cacoon (GBR) and the Kinsale Yacht Club group led by Micheal O’Suilleabhain (IRL). The 34 teams waited ashore with a two-hour postponement while enough breeze filled in. Dickson’s Headcase won the day, although Tadhg O’Loingsigh’s Janx Spirit (IRL) wasn’t much off that pace, lodging a second and third. Mark Usher’s Headgehog (IRL) placed third in Race 8, and David Bailey’s Hard on Port (IRL) was second in Race 9. Six nations are represented: Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Ireland, Italy and the United States. Racing concludes Saturday, and 10 total races are planned.

A bullet in Wednesday’s final contest positioned Karsunke’s Schwere Jungs (GER) in the silver position overall, while Sotitiou’s JMania kept up their consistent scores with a second and the team from Kinsale Yacht Club helmed by Micheal O’Suilleabhain (IRL) followed.

Howth Boat Headcase is Irish J/24 Champion at Foynes Yacht Club on the Shannon Estuary

July 27, 2022

The Irish J/24 National Championship took place at Foynes Yacht Club on the Shannon Estuary. 18 boats took part in the event drawn from all over the country. Thursday evening was very busy with boats being launched and some final adjustments being made. Registration and weigh-in also took place that evening, with a few having to run a marathon and have saunas to make the final cut, but perseverance prevailed, and everybody was at their target weight of 400 kg in time for the first race on Friday morning. Foynes Yacht Club’s U25 J/24 team was very busy making and selling sandwiches every morning before racing, with the proceeds going toward the upkeep of their J/24 Jasper. At the outset, Commodore John Paul Buckley welcomed everyone to Foynes Yacht Club and wished fair and safe sailing to all competitors and hoped that it would be an enjoyable event both on and off the water. Mark Usher, President of the J/24 Association, said a few words on behalf of the Association, and Derek Bothwell, Race Officer, gave the briefing. Eight races were held over the weekend: three races on Friday, four races on Saturday and one on Sunday. Friday was an extremely tricky day on the water. The wind was light and shifty, making it difficult for OOD Derek Bothwell and his mark layers to set courses. However, they did prevail and managed to run three races. Saturday and Sunday brought a much steadier breeze. Headcase (Howth Yacht Club) was the overall winner of the National Championship 2022. It has been a great year for Headcase, winning the UK J/24 Nationals and the Kiel Regatta in Germany. In their prizegiving speech, Sam Byrne stated that they loved coming to Foynes Yacht Club, and that the standard of racing was one of the best. He complimented the Race Management, the onshore support and the great hospitality. Taking second place was the Kerry boys (Janx Spirit from Tralee Bay Sailing Club), and third place went to El Rico of Lough Erne Yacht Club, all the way from Enniskillen. Kinsalor (Kinsale Yacht Club) won the U25 category and took first in the Silver Fleet. Foynes Yacht Club’s U25 Jasper came second in the U25 category.


Mike Marshall’s American Garage Secures 2022 J/24 World Championship in Final Race

July 23, 2022

Mike Marshall’s American Garage may have never been in first place overall during races one through nine, but he was after the tenth and final race to claim the title of 2022 J/24 World Champion. With crew Dave Hughes, Allan Terhune, Jeffrey Hayden and Rod Favela, the Newport, Rhode Island-based skipper overcame a Black Flag in Race 7 to finish with 29 net points. Paul Foerster’s Grand Slam 2 compiled a stellar week of racing, but a 10 in the last race became their discard, and they finished a mere point behind Marshall for second place. Nobuyuki Imai’s Siesta always impresses, and this Championship was no different as they placed third with 32 points. John Mollicone’s New England Ropes was in the hunt all week and ended just a notch behind Siesta for fourth place. Foerster’s Grand Slam 2 won the strong 27-boat Corinthian division, ahead of Imai’s Siesta and James Freedman’s LOL. This year is the inaugural presentation of the Corinthian perpetual trophy, generously donated by long-time J/24 sailor Jim Farmer. In regard to the team mood following the BFD, Marshall said, “It’s always hard waiting the race out. You know you put yourself in a bad start.” From Race 8 on, he continued, “We needed to be perfect, and we weren’t, but in the last race we rounded the top mark in first. Paul was behind us, and we knew we had to be in front of Siesta. (Friday) was the lightest day, but we liked the big breeze all week.” Marshall finished second in Race 10.

The IJCA also awarded its perpetual trophies:
• Jaeger Women’s Trophy to Beatriz Agusti on Mermaid Rescue
• Youth Turner Trophy to James Thurlow on Fortitude
Race nine started at Corpus Christi Yacht Club in Texas USA as scheduled under a Black Flag and was all clear. It was a four-legged course at a distance of 1.6 nautical miles for the first leg and 1.5 following. West wind speeds were 12-14 knots. Race 10 was similar: black flag all clear, course 4 at 1.55nm. Friday’s race winners were Keith Whittemore’s Furio and Mollicone’s New England Ropes.

LA SUPERBA Wins Italy J/24 Cup Porto Ercole

May 27, 2022

After 10 hard-fought races, the XLI J/24 Italian Championship ended off Porto Ercole Cala Galera, Italy for the fleet of 20 J/24s. The setting for the race course was spectacular, bordered by the Tombolo della Feniglia peninsual (6 km long) on one side, the cliffs of Forte Filippo, Forte Stella and Torre dell’Avoltore on the other (Porto Ercole side) and the Torre S. Pancrazio and Torre San Biagio on the Ansedonia side. In between were the beautiful small islands of Isolotto d’Ercole and Formiche di Burano. The venue made for shifty, streaky winds, challenging the tacticians to sail somewhat conservatively. The title went again to Ignazio Bonanno’s LA SUPERBA team with crew of Alfredo Branciforte, Francesco Picaro, Simone Scontrino and Vincenzo Vano. This was the fifth consecutive time the team has won the regatta. “We returned to Cala Galera after 2015, finding very different weather conditions,” explained the helmsman Bonanno. “We are happy with the result, also because we have maintained an excellent scoreline, never leaving third place until the eighth round where we had a collision that forced the retirement. Apart from this episode, the Championship ended well, meeting our expectations.” On the podium with LA SUPERBA was the silver medal-winning team led by Marco Frulio, skipper of ARIA, with his team of Gianvito Distefano on the sheets, Roberto Carzedda on tactics, Grazia Savona on the mast and Antonello Zucca on the bow. Rounding out the podium and awarded the bronze was Pietro Diamanti’s JAMAICA team of tactician Antonio Lupo, bowman Fabrizio Ginesi, spinnaker trimmer Matteo Tronfi and Paolo Governato on the genoa. “It was a very intense Championship where we always raced among the top boats,” commented Frulio. “It was the consistency of the placings and two first races of the day that allowed us to win the fight head-to-head with Diamanti. We congratulate JAMAICA for the splendid Championship they sailed and, obviously, to the Bonanno’s Italian Navy team on LA SUPERBA for yet another victory.” “I am happy with the result of JAMAICA. But, above all, with the balance of this successful 2022 Italian Championship. They were four days of magnificent sailing thanks to the perfect organization and hospitality of the Circolo Nautico and the Vela Argentario,” commented JAMAICA’s skipper Diamanti. “I would also like to thank the Jury, the Technical Committee, Fleet Captain Massimo Mariotti and all those who have worked for the success of this 2022 edition. In particular, I thank the Captain of the Navy- Giuseppe Cannatà- Director of Marivela- who honored us with his presence at the award ceremony.” “It was a truly exciting and fun Italian Championship, thanks to CN Argentario that offered us four wonderful days, allowing us to regularly play all 10 scheduled races,” concluded Alberto Morici. “We are also satisfied because we are fond of this beautiful Class that we hope to be able to host on other occasions as well. A Class that always leaves everyone satisfied, because the crews are all nice and close-knit. We would like to thank the J/24 Class President Sr. Diamanti and all the participants, and we look forward to seeing you in Argentario for the next few years.” For more Italian J/24 Class information, visit https://www.j24.it/.


LA SUPERBA Dominates J/24 Livorno Regatta

May 8, 2022

The LNI Livorno hosted one of the J/24 spring series in Livorno, Italy for a fleet of 16 boats as part of the International Sailing Week of the Naval Academy City of Livorno. With six victories, Ignazio Bonanno’s LA SUPERBA from the Centro Vela Altura Napoli of the Navy (crewed by Alfredo Branciforte, Francesco Picaro, Simone Scontrino, Vincenzo Vano) won by a landslide, repeating last year’s success in the Labronian waters in front of Ardenza. Second was the UNITED crew from Hamburg, Germany, and third was Pietro Diamanti’s JAMAICA team. The prohibitive weather conditions, the driving rain, and the Ostro wind prevented the crews from going out to sea on Saturday, leaving the ranking unchanged. While on the final day on Sunday, the wind between 15 and 20 knots and lots of sun allowed the regatta RC/ PRO to complete four races.
