Inaugural J/70 Corinthian World Championship at Kongelig Dansk Yachtklub - Day 1

by Julie & Christopher Howell 4 Jun 12:05 PDT 4-8 June 2024

The first ever J/70 Corinthian World Championship got under way Tuesday at Kongelig Dansk Yachtklub in Denmark with more than 100 boats from 14 nations.

The format includes two days of a qualifying series, followed by three days of Championship racing in Gold and Silver fleets to determine the 2024 winner. For Tuesday and Wednesday, teams are separated into four groups who alternate flights. The opening day started with lighter winds but increased throughout the three contests with choppy seas.

Teams from Brazil and the USA dominated the day. In the opening flights, the winners were Alberto Guarischi's Three Musketeers (BRA) and Michael Goldfarb's War Canoe (USA). Guarischi's Three Musketeers also won in the second round, as did Keith Whittemore's Furio (USA). Closing out the final flights' victories were Marcos Soares' Capin Canela (BRA) and Renato Faria's To Nessa (BRA). This leaves the overall top group to be Guarischi's Three Musketeers, Whittemore's Furio and Faria's To Nessa.

Countries represented are: AUS, BEL, BRA, DEN, ESP, EST, GBR, GER, FIN, NED, NOR, SUI, SWE, USA. Complete results may be found at J70 Corinthian Worlds 2024 on manage2sail.
