International J 24 Class Adjusts European Championship Schedule
March 6, 2021—The International J 24 Class Association (IJCA), in cooperation with the Italian Federation of Sailing (F.I.V.) who delegates Yacht Club Adriaco, Triestina della Vela and Yacht Club Porto San Rocco have agreed to cancel the 2021 J/24 European Championship. The Italian J/24 Class will now host the J/24 European Championship in Trieste, Italy in 2024.
“Most of the European Class representatives do not think that crew will be safe and able to travel across Europe to participate in the event. We agreed that, all considered, it is not safe or wise to go on with the organization in 2021. Trieste 2024 is the best option,” said Roberto Sponza, the 2021 J/24 European Championship Event Chairperson.
The IJCA and its members worldwide look forward to resuming the European Championship schedule in 2022 and beyond:
2022 J/24 European Championship, August 29-September 3, 2022 at Howth Yacht Club, Howth, Ireland
2023 J/24 European Championship, August 20-27, 2023 at Balatonfüred Yacht Club, Lake Balaton Hungary
