J24 World Championships title sponsor announced

'J/24 World Championships 2011'    Jorge Cousillas – El Ojo Nautico

J/24 World Championships 2013 are being held at Howth Yacht Club, Ireland in late August next year. BMW Ireland has been confirmed as the title sponsor of the event.

One of the major regattas on the Irish sailing calendar for 2013, the BMW J/24 Worlds has already attracted interest from J/24 sailors in the USA, Canada, UK, Netherlands, Hungary, Sweden, France, Japan, Monaco, Italy, Germany and Greece. Up to sixty boats from thirteen countries are expected to compete.

Racing will take place over five days (August 26th-30th) and will be preceded by registration, measurement and practice from the 22nd. The Principal Race Officer will be ISAF International Race Officer David Lovegrove (IRL) while ISAF International Judge Bob Milner (UK) will chair the International Jury.

The J/24 is the biggest and most widespread one-design keelboat class in the world with fleets in 32 countries and is sailed in half a dozen bases in Ireland. Twelve Irish boats have already qualified for the Worlds after a series of regional and national championships over the past two seasons.

'We are delighted that BMW Ireland has agreed to continue its support of major sailing events at Howth, having sponsored the 2011 J/24 Europeans and this year’s ICRA Cruiser Nationals. The partnership has worked well and we look forward to a top class event next year,' said Derek Bothwell, Chairman of the organising committee.

John Ives, Managing Director of BMW Ireland, added: 'Our connection with sailing and, in particular, our experience with those two major events means we are only too happy to work with Howth Yacht Club again to support such a prestigious world-class event in Ireland.'

Howth Yacht Club has previously hosted seven World and European Championships in the past, testimony to its ability to host major regattas. The BMW J/24 Worlds is the biggest event in a programme of 15 local, national and international events being staged by the club in 2013.
