J/24 European Championship at Howth Yacht Club - Overall

by Julie & Christopher Howell 3 Sep 21:51 BST 30 August - 3 September 2022

Every point matters. After 10 races among 34 boats, the J/24 European Championship hosted by Howth Yacht Club in Ireland concluded in a tie at 65 points with the third-place team only one more point back.

Winning the tiebreaker and the European title was JMania (GRE) helmed by Stelios Sotitiou plus crew Chris Kifidis, Kynthia Skotida, Costas Tridimas and Ourania Vergou. Although their final race became their discard, JMania outlasted a surge from David Hale's Cacoon (GBR) who sprang from fourth place to claim the silver.

The Kinsale Yacht Club group led by Micheal O'Suilleabhain (IRL) on Kinsailor claimed a second place in Saturday's final contest to end with 66 points and the bronze position. Denny Vaughan's East Street (USA) closed the regatta with a light air victory in Race 10.

Hale's Cacoon (GBR) topped the 21-boat Corinthian Division, in advance of the Kinsale Yacht Club team (IRL) and Cillian Dickson's Headcase (IRL).
