Welcome to the home of the Irish J24 fleet

The J/24 keelboat started with one man’s desire for a sailboat to accommodate his family and to be a competitive racer. Since then over 5000 J/24s have been built around the world. It is probably the most successful small one-design keelboat class in the history of sailing and is one of the most active and growing fleets in Ireland

The J/24 Association of Ireland run a number of one design events throughout the year The regional events are the Easterns, Southerns, Westerns and Northerns. Generally, one of these regions will host a National Championships in lieu of their regional event each year.

The J/24 are also rated under IRC and ECHO handicap systems which enables them to compete both at club level and at national cruiser racing events.

The J/24 Association are always delighted to welcome new sailors to the fleet.
