The 2011 J/24 Worlds in Buenos Aires, Argentina started with the skippers meeting where the 58 crews from nine nations all gathered for the first time.

Following the Meeting, the practice race started at 2:00PM in eight kts from the SE. After a few general recalls a 'Black Flag' warning, the fleet raced on the course for the first time. The wind was shifty, swinging 10-15 degrees and the sea lumpy which made for great down wind conditions. As in all practice races, the fleet peeled off on the last leg to weather and headed back to the marina for the opening ceremony.

Yacht Club Argentino hosted a very warm and friendly welcome with a navy pipe band as entertainment. The flags of each nation were hoisted by a representative from their nation in what was a fantastic show as the sun was setting.

Food and beverages flowed freely and all the crews mingled and enjoyed each other’s company before the competition starts tomorrow.

2011 J/24 World Championship is being sailed at the Yacht Club Argentino, Bueno Aires from November 11-19. Countries sompeting include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Great Britain, Italy, Peru, Uruguay and the United States.
