J/24 European Championship 2024 to be held in Costa Smeralda
Championship set to run from 10th to 16th June 2024
Porto Cervo, Italy. 13 September 2023. With the 33rd edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup now wrapped up, work on the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda's 2024 sporting calendar continues. From 10th to 16th June 2024 the European Championship for the J/24 class, the most popular one-design keelboat in the world, will be organised by the YCCS Association in Porto Cervo in association with the J/24 Class.
The J/24 is a one-design boat created by American Rod Johnstone in the mid-1970s which went into production from 1977. It is estimated that at least 5,500 hulls have been built worldwide to date. This little yacht has made a significant contribution to the popularity of competitive sailing, and several of the best-known names in international racing are former winners of international J/24 championships.
The class continues to thrive and remains popular with owners and crews across all levels. As hosts of the 2024 European Championship, the YCCS wishes to extend a warm welcome to all those who would like to come and experience sailing in the wonderful waters of the Costa Smeralda.
Pending the opening of enrolments and further details on the programme, the video presentation of the 2024 European Championship captures both the beauty of sailing in the Costa Smeralda and the fun of racing with a sporting spirit on the J/24s.
