Registration for the 2024 J/24 World Championship presented by Beecher's Handmade Cheese, to be sailed September 28-October 5, is open.

Framed by snow-capped mountains, Puget Sound promises to provide picturesque and challenging conditions for the competitors on the water while the famed Pacific Northwest will provide plenty of activity off the water.

The host Seattle J/24 Fleet 26 has assembled an experienced and enthusiastic organizing committee that includes two-time world champion Keith Whittemore. Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle, which is a veteran of many national and international championships over the decades, will be running races along with renowned Principal Race Officer Mark Foster. There will also be on-the-water judges. Sailing conditions can vary from steady light breezes to 35-knot blows, all punctuated by the region's challenging currents.

In addition to the title sponsor Beecher's Handmade Cheese, major sponsors include Bank of America, Investco, Diamond Parking, Slingshot Kiteboards and Cheap Diver.

Entertainment and parties will be on-site, spectator boats will be available and live video coverage is planned. Opening Ceremonies will be nearby at the Nordic Heritage Museum.
