The 2022 USA J/24 Nationals will be sailed north of downtown Dallas, Texas on a huge reservoir known as Lewisville Lake.

Hosting the event after a long hiatus is the Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club, with two dozen boats entered from across America, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. The sailing is challenging on the lake as it can often be shifty and very puffy, typical of lake sailing on the plains.

Who are some of the top teams to be competing for National Championship honors? Certainly, these teams should feature at the top of the leaderboard; Keith Whittemore's FURIO from Seattle, WA; Mike Marshall's AMERICAN GARAGE from Newport, RI; Nobuyuki Imai's SIESTA from Wakayama, Japan; Travis Odenbach's BOGUS from Rochester, NY; Chris Holmes' BAD MOON from Aledo, TX; Carter White's WIND MONKEY from Fishers, IN; Paul Foerster's GRAND SLAM II from Rush Creek, TX; Will Fastiggi's FAWN LIEBOWITZ from Burlington, VT; and Jasper Van Vliet's USA 5277 from Richmon, CA.
