It's a return to basics for the French J/80 fleet since the first J/80 World Championship in France was organized and contested in La Rochelle in 2002.

Building on the merger between the two clubs that were the Société des Régates Rochelaises and the École de Voile Rochelaise, La Rochelle Nautique capitalizes on the know-how, the skills, the history of these two sailing institutions supporting sailing in La Rochelle. The entire La Rochelle Nautique team is committed to making the J/80 World Championship an exceptional event, with the support of its institutional partners: the city, the department, and the region.

The French J/80 Class is organizing the J/80 World Championship in La Rochelle. In addition to a high-level competition, the J/80 class has prepared with the La Rochelle Nautique Club a very beautiful organization for the pleasure of the participants.

For your information, the City of La Rochelle is also organizing a major music festival with internationally renowned artists- check it all out here:

The event will have professional video production, with additional real-time tracking of all boats, and every race will have real live commentary and analysis.

The J/80 Worlds in France are part of the 2024 J/80 Coupe de France. This is the exciting schedule for those J/80 sailors from around the world who might want to join in on the fun of the largest, most competitive one-design keelboat class in France:
