The J/24 is a rewarding boat, very technical at the top end of one design racing, but easy to sail as a day or weekend cruiser. With nearly 6000 sailing in 47 countries it is the largest one design keelboat in the world and has produced some of the best sailors in Olympic and world championship levels.
In Australia, there are over 150 registered boats with a strong club, state and national racing program centred on Victoria, South Australia and NSW. Fleets also sail in Tasmania, Queensland and Western Australia. The J/24 is a very easy boat to own, maintain and sail on a low budget, often at half the price of comparable classes.
