About the J/24
There are currently 5,480 J/24s sailing in 165 fleets in 110 countries, with large J/24 fleets existing in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, China, India and South Africa.
The J/24 Class and its builders have provided J/24s for women’s and men’s regattas for over 35 years. On the merits of its sailing characteristics, worldwide distribution and capability to handle all kinds of sailing conditions, the J/24 continues to be a favorite among the sailors in many community sailing programs around the world.
