2016 J/80 North Americans Announcement

(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)- Toronto YC & National YC welcome the J/80 Community!  The Fleet 20 J/80 class flag is up and we’re looking forward to hosting the best North American Championship yet! For the first time ever, the NA’s will be hosted in Canada at National Yacht Club, right in the heart of downtown Toronto.  Mark your calendars now- August 4th to 7th, 2016!

Enjoy racing the world's best sportboat (yes, we're biased!) in Great Lake breezes on beautiful Lake Ontario followed by the friendliest après sailing parties.  The time is right to come on up to Toronto!  We guarantee you will have a fantastic experience.

The schedule will include a tune-up clinic on August 4th, followed by 3 days of course racing from August 5-7.  There will be prizes for everyone; including daily prizes and social events with the championship awards on August 7th.

While we’re at it, did we mention that you should spend all summer with us on Lake Ontario??  Why not come and sail the 2016 J/80 Hans Fogh Memorial Championship at LYRA on July 29-31, 2016 and hosted by Whitby YC!?  We’d love to host you and you are welcome to leave your boat at the club!

The 2016 NA’s follow one week after the LYRA regatta, just 35 minutes from Toronto. Consider entering both regattas for back-to-back weekend competition and time to enjoy Toronto (remember, the CN Spire is still the world’s tallest man-made structure).  Got ANY questions whatsoever?!  Contact Fleet Captain Larry Alexander (J/80 CAN 33 JIGGERS!)- cell# +1-416-464-5236.
