J/22 North American Champs is cancelled
Published on June 11th, 2020
The International J/22 Class Association (IJ22CA) and CORK in Kingston, Ontario Canada have determined, because of the varying levels of infection and disruption across the world, the 2020 J/22 North American Championship scheduled for August 6-9 is cancelled.
The Executive Committee has been closely monitoring the worldwide developments in the COVID-19 pandemic. They understand the huge commitment of time and money it takes to participate in a major Championship, as well as the enormous resources that our hosts dedicate to such events.
“It was important to the organizing group that we would be able to offer competitors an event complete, memorable and worthy of a North American Championship title,” said Trevor Collins, J/22 Canadian Class President. “We hope all J/22 sailors get on the water soon, and we look forward to inviting you all back to CORK in the near future.”
The Class intends to hold the 2023 J/22 North American Championship at CORK in Kingston, following the 2021 J/22 World Championship in Corpus Christi, Texas (July 18-24) and the 2022 J/22 North American Championship in Tawas Bay, Michigan (September 13-17).
