J/24 Sailors from around the world are looking forward to the 2019 J/24 World Championships in Miami, Florida, October 19–26.

This is the first time in the 41-year history of the J/24 Worlds that the event is being held in Florida, with its sunny skies, palm trees, warm breezes and excellent sailing conditions. The J/24 Worlds will be held on the same course used by ISAF every January for the World Cup Olympic Classes Regatta. The weeklong event will feature six days of exciting racing on the emerald-green waters of Biscayne Bay, one of the world's great yachting venues.

The prestigious Coral Reef Yacht Club (CRYC) will be the race committee, and will host the opening night ceremonies on their sweeping lawn overlooking Biscayne Bay. The rest of the week will feature food, music and an open bar every night sponsored by Bacardi.

The week's festivities and social events will be located just down the waterfront from CRYC in the historic Pan Am Flying Clipper hanger on the water's edge at Shake-A-Leg Miami, the sailing center in the heart of Coconut Grove that hosts sailing programs for the disabled and disadvantaged. Measurement, boat storage, launch and retrieval will be a short walk away at beautiful new Regatta Park, a purpose-built facility designed to host regattas of large fleets, used by Olympic hopefuls during the World Cup.

Eighty boats and more than 400 sailors and their support teams are expected from all over the world, representing approximately twenty countries. Mark Pincus, regatta chairman and well-known Miami J/24 sailor and regatta organizer for many South Florida regattas said, "the pristine waters of Biscayne Bay have always beckoned sailors from around the world, and the J/24 Class has always produced world-class sailors. This will be the perfect marriage of sailors and setting. In addition to the excellent sailing facilities, Miami boasts a wealth of great restaurants and lodging opportunities.
