BMW J24 European Championships 2011


As the star fleet was completing their series despite a wind affected schedule on Dublin Bay the final few J24s arrived in Howth for promises to another fantastic event that will also be hostage to the weather forecasts! 42 entries from 9 nations have gathered in north Dublin, but it is the arrival of a tropical storm that seemed fit to dominate proceedings during the event.

After abandoning any chance of running the practise race on day one, and postponing competitive racing at first light on day two, it was Tuesday before any racing could actually take place. The forecasts promise an improving meteorological situation as the week progesses though so this should be a championships full of very different conditions!
