J/24 European Championship preview

J/24 European Championship

The Flensburg Sailing Club in Glucksburg, Germany is hosting the 2018 J/24 European Championship on the famous fjord off the southwestern parts of the Baltic Sea in northern Europe.  

There are twenty-five teams competing from five nations (Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Sweden) with the large contingent of very competitive Italian and Monagesque J/24 teams noticeably absent- as the J/24 Worlds are concentrated on Lago di Garda, Italy in a few weeks time.  

The top teams that should be factors on the leaderboard are familiar to those in the world of J/24s; the principal United Kingdom team- Ian Southworth’s IL RICCIO (a World & European Champion); a number of top German teams, such as Hauke Kruss’ PFAU, Fabian Damm’s HUNGRIGER WOLF, Stefan Karsunke’s GER 5381, Emily Kern’s ROTOGIRL, and Daniel Frost’s JJONE; Dimitrios Altsiadis’ EVNIKI from Greece; Dirk Olyslagers’ TEAM JOOL/ EVAPCO from the Netherlands; and two Swedish teams with some pedigree (Per Hakan Persson’s FRONT RUNNER and Andreas Olovsson’s FOR FUN (PINK).
