J24 European Championships Plymouth 2016 - August 13th – 19th
The J24 European Championships are back in Plymouth for the first time since 1997,
when they were won in style by Frenchman Benoit Charon. We are expecting over
fourty teams to enter from eight nations, including the current World Champion Ian
Southworth and the current National and European Champion Duncan McCarthy, so
the fleet will be of the highest quality.
The event is being run by a great team from the R.W.Y.C. headed by Neil Dunkley.
The Race officer is David Lovegrove from Ireland who supplied us with some fantastic
racing at the Howth World and European Championships. The international Jury is
headed up by another J24 class regular Margriet Pannevis.
The J24 is the world’s most popular keel boat with over 5,400 sailing in fleets in over one hundred different countries. Easy to start out on, but seriously technical to get the most out of. J24s have always been the proving ground for the very best sailors in the world, the role of honor is like a who’s who of sailing greats.
Online entry has opened for the J24 Europeans with an initial flurry of entries!
