The event will take place from 2nd to 9th September 2023 and is expected to attract in excess of 100 entrants and capable of hosting significantly higher numbers.
The J/70 has become the most prolific one design sportboat in the world with 1500+ boats sailing in 25+ countries. Seventeen countries in Europe and Scandinavia have J/70 Class Associations. Teams from all over Europe, and further afield, are expected to compete at the 2023 J/70 European Championships.
WPNSA is an internationally renowned sailing venue which was host to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Competitions. Typical windspeed in early September is 10-17kts with minimal tidal effects making for great racing.
