J111 World Championship

A World Class Event in a World Class City

The J 111 Fleet will be joining us at Chicago Yacht Club in August, for their 2019 World Championship. This very competitive One-Design boat aims to provide and drive world class competition, with sailors coming in from all over the world to compete. 

This Year's competition consists of the 2018 National Champion and 2017 World Champion Peter Wagner on Skeleton Key, sailors from Europe and Australia, as well as several Chicago-area boats competing on home turf. We hope you will join us in August for this World Class Event!

About the J/111 Fleet

The first one-design J/111 event was held in June 2011 when the Columbia Yacht Club in Chicago, Illinois hosted their annual "Colors Regatta".  Six J/111s participated in that sunny, warm summer regatta. Since then, the Great Lakes J/111 fleet has grown considerably with  20+ boats in the region. In the Northeast, over a dozen J/111s are competing on a circuit that includes the American YC Spring/ Fall series, Block Island Week, New York Yacht Club events in Newport and the Chesapeake Bay fleet events. The first J/111 North Americans was hosted by the Chicago Yacht Club  from August 14-18, 2013.
