What started in 1975 as one man's desire to design a competitive racing boat which also had the capacity to accommodate the family, has now undeniably created the most popular racing keelboat around the world.
A stable sailboat for family, the J/24 has also been the competitive launch pad for the careers of numerous America's Cup professionals.
The world-wide acceptance of J/24 design, the strong one-design rules and the strength of the International J/24 Class Association have led to the J/24 to be selected as the platform for the International Sailing Federation's (ISAF) Nation's Cup, the ISAF Women's World Match Racing Championship, the Rolex Women's International Keelboat Championship and US Sailing's St. Francis International Masters Championship (aged 55+).
On a more local basis within Poole Harbour competitive racing is the spirit of the fleet's success, with 11 Js joining the regular Thursday evening racing from April to September hosted by the Royal Motor Yacht Club, with Parkstone Yacht Club also hosting racing on Monday evenings.
Entry forms will be available from mid-March. Contact the office by email enquiries@RMYC.co.uk or telephone on 01202 707227.
