The J24 elite will converge on Japan in September this year for the 2016 World Championships. Wakayama is a seaside town near Osaka and in September the weather is perfect for yacht racing, with average temperatures at 25 degrees and winds generally in the 8 -10 knot range. The Japanese are very friendly and love J24’s, so this is a regatta well worth putting in the calendar if you can get there. Charter boats are still available, and very good boats can be chartered for around $3600 for the regatta and return airfares are available from $1200 with Qantas. This could be the best value World Championships we will see for a long time!
World Championships are the greatest events on the sailing calendar and start life long friendships and memories, so let me know if your interested and we will try and put an Australian team together. To get one of the very few charter boats still remaining, please let me know by the end of February if you would like to be there.
