J24 World Championship
Cork, Kingston

Breeze on for the final day of racing at the 2002 J/24 World Championships. Winds from the south at 18-22 knots greeted the sailors in the morning and the committee again chose to keep the fleet close to home on the Alpha course.

Keeping the boat powered and driving through the short 2-3 foot chop was tricky as the fleet chose to use their small jibs.

As was the theme of the week, the left side seemed to pay again with most of the leaders finding some nice lanes up the shore side of the course. Chris Snow of San Diego, CA found the groove upwind and kept his boat in control on the planing downwind legs to take the win followed by Waldek Zaleski of Norwalk, CT.

Searching for extra power through the chop, about half the fleet switched to their 150 jibs for the second race. Winds again were in the 20 knot range and flat boats and controlled jibes were at a premium. Brad Read of Newport, RI took his first bullet of the series to close out a convincing victory for the regatta and join his brother as a repeat J/24 world champion.
