Tropical Storm Delays J/24 Worlds
Published on September 20th, 2016
Wakayama, Japan (September 20, 2016) – A slow-moving tropical storm dampened day two of the J/24 World Championship. The 41 teams representing Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Korea, Peru, Singapore, and the USA were kept ashore as heavy rains and winds blanketed the area.
Daniel Frost’s JJOne of Germany mastered the conditions on day one with a 1,2 to grab the early advantage. Demichi Kousuke’s Ichimokusan of Japan holds a slim lead on second place, just one ahead of Peru’s Javier Arribas on Hawky.
Ten races are scheduled on September 19 to 23. When five or more races have been completed, a boat’s series score will be the total of her race scores, excluding her worst score.
