International J/22 Class Association

There are currently 1,550 J/22s sailing in 65 fleets in 18 countries, with large J/22 fleets existing in North America, Europe and South Africa.

The J/22 Class and its builders have provided J/22s for women’s and men’s regattas for over 15 years. The J/22 has been one of the most actively provided boats to date in women’s match racing as well. On the merits of its sailing characteristics, worldwide distribution and smaller 3-4 person crew number, the J/22 continues to be a favorite among the sailors.

If your looking for a great class, look no further than the International J/22. Go to the International J/22 Class website for more info.

J/22 Class Association Highlights

  • Established 1983 and granted ISAF International Status 1990.
  • Two-Time Winner of US Sailing’s “One-Design Class of the Year"
