J/24 Worlds: For all the marbles

Published on July 21st, 2022

After four days of racing, only four points separate the top four boats heading into the final day of the 2022 J/24 World Championship being held July 18-22 in Corpus Christi, TX.

It has been a windy event for the 38 teams from nine countries, and while Paul Foerster’s team has held the lead after winning the first three races, the penultimate day was their worst outing. With winds ranging from 19 knots gusting to 33, they posted a 4-7 and now there are three teams to deal with in the two remaining races.

Foerster’s Grand Slam 2 remains holds 21 points, while Mike Marshall’s American Garage and Nobuyuki Imai’s Siesta are tied at 24 points for second and third, respectively. John Mollicone’s New England Ropes is only one point further back with 25 points.

Foerster also leads the 27-boat Corinthian division, ahead of Imai’s Siesta and James Freedman’s LOL.
