2017 Sugar Bowl J/30 North American Championship

On behalf of the J/30 Class Association, New Orleans Yacht Club, and J/30 Gulf Coast District we are pleased and excited to host the 2017 J/30 North American Championship October 19th through 22nd.  We hope to make this a great experience for all competitors and have set our goal to have at least 20 boats on the starting line.

Lake Pontchartrain always provides challenging race conditions and historic New Orleans is a wonderful and fun vacation destination. You’ll be able to enjoy this experience and local “Southern” hospitality with planned events such as the French Quarter area event on Saturday.

Our planning committee has endeavored to make this easy for competitors and their crews to register, plan their trip, and arrange all the associated logistics to attend this event. On this regatta web site you’ll find information to answer virtually all the questions typically asked for attending distant events. If you need information that’s not posted here, please send an email to the contacts listed on the Logistics Information page. The Logistics Information page provides directions (driving, flying & by sea), suggested places to stay, local restaurants, boat launching & support facilities, and many tourism places of interest. You’ll also find links helpful for sailing around New Orleans.
