J/24 World Championship – Multiple champions sign-up for Howth action

The J/24 World Championship has some of the leading names already entered including the current World Champion Mauricio Santa Cruz of Brazil, the top two finishers in this year’s North American Championship and 2011 European Champion Ian Southworth of Britain. The event is set to take place at Howth Yacht Club, near Dublin, Ireland, in late August. Almost 40 entries have been received to date from nine countries.

Santa Cruz, a four-time winner of the title, was so keen to defend his title that he was the first overseas entry in the competition. He also won the Worlds in 2006, 2007 and 2009.

Leading the US challenge will be this year’s North American Champion Mike Ingham and runner-up Travis Odenbach, both from Rochester, NY, while among the leading Irish contenders will be the current National Champion JP McCaldin from Lough Erne and Irish Class President Flor O’Driscoll of the host club.

Ian Southworth from the Royal Corinthian YC in Cowes is already familiar with Howth, having won the J/24 Europeans there two years ago, and he completed a hat-trick of those titles in 2007.

Luis Olcese from Peru and Japanese entry Koji Matsumoto represent highly competitive challenges as both are recognised as notable performers in J/24 circles and have finished well at previous championships.

The Worlds racing programme, preceded by three days of registration and measurement, starts on Monday 26th August and continues until Friday 30th.
