Sail Newport SW
The J/22 Class will honor its 30th anniversary this year with a World Championship in the birthplace of the J/22—Newport, Rhode Island.

From October 1-5, J/22 competitors from around the globe will convene for five days of racing in one of the most venerable keelboats worldwide to take place in the legendary sailing venue on Narragansett Bay. Sail Newport will serve as the Organizing Authority and host site for the World Championship event.

'We’re really excited about the J/22 Worlds coming to Newport, RI this year,' Jeff Johnstone of J Boats said. '2013 marks the 30th anniversary of J/22, and hull number one was launched and sea-trialed in the same waters we’ll be racing. It will be a reunion of J/22 sailors spanning three decades, and is not to be missed!' he added.

The Notice of Race has been issued, and registration opened at J22 Worlds.
