J/24 US National Championships shift one year

The United States J/24 Class Association (USJCA) and Malletts Bay Boat Club in Vermont have determined, because of the varying levels of infection and disruption across the world, that the 2020 J/24 US National Championship scheduled for September 24-27 will be sailed in September 2021. The US Executive Committee has been closely monitoring the worldwide developments in the COVID-19 pandemic. They understand the huge commitment of time and money it takes to participate in a major Championship, as well as the enormous resources that our hosts dedicate to such events.

The 2021 US National Championship will be held in Malletts Bay next September 10-12. The previously scheduled US Nationals will also shift back one year. Therefore, the 2022 Championship will be hosted by Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club in Texas May 23-28, and The Lake George Club in New York will present the 2023 event (dates to be determined). In the meantime, the Class wishes all J/24 sailors and their families the best in these difficult times. We look forward to resuming sailing as soon as we can.

Molly White, USJCA President, said, "As much as we all want to go sailing, the US Class has also taken into consideration the safety of all involved, the ability for people traveling to access these events, and all of the hard work and planning that goes into a quality event such as a National Championship. We hope that while we wait in anticipation for these events to return in 2021, sailors are able to take advantage of all the J/24 racing their local fleets have to offer."
